Grafton Regis

Grafton Regis is a small village in Northamptonshire, 5 miles from Stony Stratford.

It is close to the River Tove and the Grand Union Canal.

It was at the church here that Edward IV married Elizabeth Woodville, the widow of Sir John Grey of Groby. This had a profound effect on English history, and in particular the story of the tragic young king Richard III.

Grafton was given its "Regis" suffix in commemoration of this event.
