Northamptonshire, &lsquo;the Rose of the Shires', is a wonderful land-locked county in the heart of England. With Leicestershire, Rutland, Warwickshire, Lincolnshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire all neighbouring us, we are never far from new places to explore; if it's possible to run out of things in Northamptonshire itself! <br />Whether you favour rural or urban life, Northamptonshire has something for everyone. The bustling towns of Northampton, Oundle, Towcester and Daventry, with their ever growing shopping, arts and leisure facilities; the beautiful undulating countryside with historical country houses, such as Rockingham Castle and Althrop; ancient woodlands; miles of waterways; and glorious nature parks, all await discovery. <br />If you ever tire from the abundance of historic towns and pretty thatched villages, Northamptonshire is a great place to enjoy sporting pursuits such as Formula One Grand Prix at Silverstone, the Rockingham Speedway, horse racing, rugby and county cricket. <br />There is so much to see and do in and around Northamptonshire. Let's make the most of it and help other parents to do the same! <br /> <br />I'm Julia, your Local Editor and you can email me anytime at I look forward to hearing from you.
