stagecoachbus.com/PdfUploads/Timetable_16654… is a timetable of the main service which takes about an hour

There's also stagecoachbus.com/PdfUploads/Timetable_15509… - a few minutes slower

Don't even think of trying to do it by train - it takes twice as long and heads off in the wrong direction

dzug has nailed it with his comments. In order to get from Northampton to Kettering you really need to use road transport (bus / taxi, etc). There is no direct route via the trains because they are on two completely different main lines and using a train for the journey is not really an option at all - it takes two hours and involves two changes - one at Bletchley and one at Bedford.

Hiya. I can see you've had plenty of responses and probably actually done the journey by now however (if I can have my pennies-worth) you can't travel between Kettering and Northampton by train. The X4 bus service, however, is reliable, comfortable (new buses with wi-fi and leather seats!) and takes only a little less time than doing the journey by car! Enjoy!

Unfortunately UK bus operators (with a few honourable exceptions) are rubbish at putting fares information on their websites.

Give Stagecoach Northampton a call on 01604 676060
