A Visit to Northampton

Anne, my wife, and I had a day out together recently. As we are both very busy in different ways, it doesn`t happen very often that we can go out for the day, but this was one of those occasions.

We chose Northampton, not all that far away from where we live in Leicester, but a town that Anne didn`t really know.

I was able to show her three interesting churches which unfortunately are normally closed, and the baroque All Saints Church which we were able to visit.

We also had a look at the large Market Place, the excellent indoor shopping centre and the even more excellent Northampton Museum, where we were very impressed by the gallery holding the town`s collection of shoes.

And we treated ourselves to a meal of fish and chips in a fish restaurant in Abington Street.
