Great all around day for the family, the church had beautiful floral display, as abdominal harvest festival decor, good cup of tea and juices and of course cakes and biscuits.

The Church of Mary Magdalene is the epitome of the phrase 'Hidden Gem.' While on a trip to Northamptonshire in September of 2013, five of us stopped to view the town's Queen Eleanor Cross, the best surviving of the original 12, dating from 1294. The Church is a short walk from the square. While there we happened across a guide who gave us a free tour explaining the grand history of the church. The concept of the number of British Kings and even arguably the Greatest Knight William Marshal visiting the place was mind-blowing. The enigmatic array of varying architecture inside gave it a sheer 'Da Vinci Code' feel. Definitely take the tour. Can't recommend highly enough if you're in the area.

We had a disappointing visit to Kettering (don't bother), so delighted to find Geddington a short drive away, a lovely village and church full of history and fantastic tales. The church is very worth a visit but you need to go when open and the guide is there. You find out so much more with his knowledge.

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
