Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Geddington is a village in Northamptonshire, 3 miles from Kettering and on the tiny River Ise.

In the village square stands the Eleanor Cross, one of twelve built by Edward I in 1290 at the places where the cortege of his Queen Eleanor of Castile rested.

Only three of these are still in existence, the others being at Hardingstone and Waltham Cross, near Waltham Abbey.

St. Mary Magdalene Church shows traces of Anglo-Saxon origin, and there is a fine 13th century bridge over the river.

Just outside the village is the magnificent 17th century Boughton House, home of the Dukes of Buccleuch, set in superb parkland.
