Information about Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire, situated in the East Midlands, is a landlocked county. Its county town is Northampton, and other towns include Kettering, Wellingborough and Corby. A ridge of low hills runs southwest-northeast, and separates the basin of the River Nene from that of the River Welland.

Steeped in history, Northamptonshire boasts a remarkable collection of historic mansions and country houses. Among these architectural gems, Barnwell Castle, dating back to the 13th century, stands as a testament to the county’s enduring heritage. Additionally, Tudor-era marvels like Rockingham Castle, Castle Ashby, and Sulgrave Manor, the ancestral home of George Washington’s family, contribute to the county’s cultural richness. The northern expanse also holds the historic ground of the Battle of Naseby, a pivotal event where Charles I met defeat.

The picturesque scenery of Northamptonshire unfolds through expansive estates and undulating pastoral lands. Beyond its classic countryside charm, the county is renowned for the numerous reservoirs created along the River Nene and its tributaries, adding a touch of tranquillity to the landscape. While the Industrial Revolution once propelled Northamptonshire into the limelight for its flourishing footwear industry, recent years have witnessed a shift. Nevertheless, the county’s strategic rail and motorway connections, coupled with its central location, render it an ideal hub for manufacturing and marketing endeavours.

Northamptonshire, with its blend of historical allure and modern connectivity, continues to evolve, embracing the legacy of its past while strategically positioning itself for the opportunities of the future.
