Stopped off in Geddington when we had a few days in the area. As we were looking at the plague in front of the church we were greeted by a Canadian gentleman who was opening up the church and took time out to show us round the church and explained the history of the church (and also some English history) - it was out of the blue but fabulous. If you are history buff try and catch up with him - its well worth a visit

I just did what I never thought I would. Got married. My wife is from Geddington. We returned to get married her in a church that has over 1000 years of history. Amazing! I suggest that those that appreciate history to come and experience history. Thank you all for an amazing day that will stand in my memory the rest of my life!
