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.

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

This is not only a lovely building from the outside, with all its stone carvings, but the Norman architecture is splendid inside. The round arches and pillars are carved with zig-zags and other designs typical of this architectural period. Also inside is a memorial to...More
