I stopped by on route from the railway station. It really is a stunning old church on the edge of the town centre and really worth a visit.

A very unique building. The stone it is built with creates an unusual pattern. Inside it is full of history and very well kept. Have passed many times and glad I made the effort to visit.

This gem of a church is one of the few 'in the round' churches as celebrated by the Knights Templar. You'll feel the da Vinci Code

Wonderful old church, located about half way between the train station and the town centre. Very well kept with a wealth of detail to see. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. A rare historic gem, well worth a look if you are visiting Northampton.

Unfortunately no longer used, this church is beautiful. It's around 900 years old, with banded stone in parts. There are some wonderful carvings inside and out and Norman arcades. It is grade I listed and well worth a look.

This church has so much history. It is on Saxon site and a shrine to St Ragenar (tombstone displayed in the church). The main elements were built in Norman times with the highly decorated arches still in amazing condition. Victorian alterations have been restored and...More
