Learn about the art of hawking at farm

People can take part in hawk walks round an historic site.

The hawk walks will take place around Chester Farm, near Irchester, and participants will learn about the history of hawking as well as the heritage of the farm, and learn how to carry and handle a hooded hawk from professional falconry company Raphael Historic Falconry.

The walks are on March 8, 9, 22 and 23, and April 5 and 6. There are two sessions from 9.30am to midday and 1pm to 3.30pm. The walks cost £50, which includes tuition and refreshments. For details go to www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/chesterfarm or call 01604 362523.
