Discover Northampton’s hidden history

Historian Mike Ingram is offering guided tours of the historic heart of Northampton.

In medieval times the town was an important trade centre and a seat of government where monarchs took many of the decisions that form the waypoints of British history: including the trial of Thomas A Becket; the rebel nobles that prompted Magna Carta and the final defeat of Charles I.

Mike, who has been contributing to The NeneQuirer since the magazine began, spends around two and a half hours tracking Northampton’s past through the town centre showing what has been lost and what, against all the odds, is still there to be seen.

The first tour was on December 2 and the following video was shot after it:

Single tickets are £10 for adults but there are discounts for group bookings and school tours.

I'm the editor and owner of The NeneQuirer.
