Geddington was an important crossroad in the medieval period and this church was very well endowed benefiting from royal patronage from the nearby hunting lodge, sadly destroyed.

The local primary school was having there annual fair day. Lots of homemade jams, and different types of soaps jewelry etc. Tombola tickets lots to win, homemade wines also. 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.
