    I have visited Irchester a few times when in the area with my dog and it has always been pleasant. Obviously can be busy on a weekend but I have found it easy to find quiet paths to follow and my dog always seems to enjoy himself!

    What a pity that Dom Joly had sucha quiet, refurbished, theater in which to present his 'Hezbollah Walking Club' tour. The theater has recently undergone a refurbishment wit all the chairs being overhauled. Great facility that should be used more often by the local community. Hopefully the COVID-19 impacts will not hit it too hard in the next couple of months.

    Wonderful! I'd give it 6 stars if I could. Superb ales, £3.50 a pint, best station toilets ever, lovely garden area to sit in on a Sunday afternoon, quirky little building full of jokey touches, pleasant publican ..what more could you want? Outstanding!!

    4 friends got together, at Pot en Ciel above the Emporium, for the morning as a catch up after lockdown. We had a lovely time choosing and painting our bisque pottery. Agnes was so helpful and encouraging about what we could do and try. Look forward to going again!

    Walked past this today (Dec 2020) and reminded me what a great place it is to visit, as we have done several times. Informative volunteers and displays, and a great collection of industrial railwayana. Especially worth visiting when the saddle tank from the old W'boro Ironworks branch is in steam, which has been beautifully restored.

    In an interesting area of Wellingborough so worth having a browse around other shops, camping on is massive etc
    Also near River so can feed the swans plus in the Summer the park with water activity is a haven for Children
    Do check the website about the brewery as can be difficult if stocks are low or not much happening

    My visit to the "Church of St. Mary the Virgin" was totally unplanned and pure serendipity. I had dropped my car at a local garage for an MOT and therefore had an hour to kill and so set off walking. After about 15 minutes I came across the stunning exterior of St. Mary's sat on it's own peaceful plot of land bathed in Spring sunshine.
    As I stood admiring the church from the outside a church caretaker (Bryan Howlett) came up to me and started chatting about the history of the church. I asked if there was anyway I could look inside and as Father Robert Farmer was due for his morning prayers I was able to look inside.
    The church was built, in the Perpendicular Gothic style, from 1908 to 1930, and was designed by Sir Ninian Comper. Comper was knighted by King George VI in 1950 and died in December 1960, after cremation Comper's ashes were interred beneath the windows he designed in Westminster Abbey. This inside of this Parish Church is more like a Cathedral, the finish is just beautiful. The design and interior of the church was influenced by the Oxford Movement and the Victorian revival of ritualism. Financing of the build was largely due to the Misses Sharman of Wellingborough.
    In summary this is a very lovely Parish church that is well worth a visit, (but do go to the Church website to arrange when you can have access), and I am so glad I chanced upon today.

    A lovely old church, in the middle of Wellingborough, easy to get too, and some fantastic architecture, well worth a visit if your in Wellingborough.

    The Church Hall is the place to go on the 3rd friday of the month for a Line Dancing night out. Mel Fisher who runs Silver Stetsons Line Dance Club is your wonderful host, look out for the ads on Face Book.

    We accessed this from the Rushden Lakes shopping area. The boardwalk is pretty, and has cafes and a visitor centre. You can do a nice walk around the lake to enjoy the scenery and watch the water birds.

    Swansgate is so dead now like first of all the closing times are so bad???? 6pm on a weekend? Like at least close at around 8pm.. Also swansgate is just overall depressing and boring- definitely needs a revamp asap and also needs more stores, i would rather go back to Northampton..

    Only opens on a weekend. Drive through the security boom and follow the signs to the left. The museum is very small and free, but shows a lot of who was on the field, such as ATS, Land army and lots of period items. The medal of honour on display has an amazing story, never seen one before

    I was in the area with some time to kill, so thought I’d pull over to look at the Wellingborough War Memorial.

    Just outside the Queen’s Head a pub at the junction of Broad Green and the A5193. It is constructed from square sectioned, Clipsham stone and is a nice feature of the local area.
