This gem of a church is one of the few 'in the round' churches as celebrated by the Knights Templar. You'll feel the da Vinci Code

Wonderful old church, located about half way between the train station and the town centre. Very well kept with a wealth of detail to see. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. A rare historic gem, well worth a look if you are visiting Northampton.

Unfortunately no longer used, this church is beautiful. It's around 900 years old, with banded stone in parts. There are some wonderful carvings inside and out and Norman arcades. It is grade I listed and well worth a look.

900 years old, of the oldest in Northamptonshire. The carvings are beautiful, flowers, birds and beasts, I love the man being swallowed by the monster! Plantagenet Kings worshipped here.

St Peter's is now being looked after by The Churches Conservation Trust and I have to say the voluneers that we met were so full of passion and fascinating information that we were entertained, engaged and informed.
