Hampton-on-the-Hill is the main hamlet in the parish of Budbrooke. 
It was the location of Grove Park, a large estate, which from 1615 belonged to the Dormer family.  The house was re-built about 1830 but has now been demolished. Many of the masters family worked on the Grove Park estate.
See the story of Thomas Masters, the burglar.
Hampton-on-the-Hill is also the location of St. Charles Borromeo Roman Catholic Church constructed in 1812, close to the entrance of the Grove Park estate.
