The following information is taken from Wikipedia.

Burton Dassett Hills Country Park is a country park in south-eastern Warwickshire, England.

It was created as a country park in 1971 and is run by Warwickshire County Council. It comprises a group of ironstone hills, which are named after the tiny village of Burton Dassett which is located in the hills. The hills rise to 203m (666 ft) above sea level and are situated half a mile east of the M40 motorway.

The area was once extensively quarried for ironstone and a short industrial railway – Edge Hill Light Railway – existed for this purpose until the 1920s.

Of interest at the site is a 12th century parish church at the old village of Burton Dassett. Outside the church is a holy well which still provides water. The park is also highly popular with flyers of kites and radio-controlled gliders.

Impressive views across the surrounding countryside can be seen from the hills; towns and other features that are viewable are described by a toposcope. On a clear day places as far afield as Coventry can be seen. The park and the church were used as a location in the Tom Selleck 1990 film Three Men and a Little Lady.
