Long Description:
The Church of St Botolph, mostly of the Decorated Period, has many interesting features.
The south porch is of an earlier date, unusually large, and has a shield bearing the arms of King Edward III who was in Northampton at that time
Some of the stained glass windows and table tombs in the churchyard reflect past members of important local families.

These windows are stunning the colours are rich and detailed
It is a ‘listed building' as are many of the old sandstone houses and cottages in both villages. They all lend character to the parishes and examples can be found beside the church where the ‘Spencer Ten Cottages' stand and just up the road, the Alms Houses which were given by the Earl Spencer for six poor widows, in memory of his parents in 1854.
