Lying in the heart of England, Northamptonshire is a county filled with historical places of interest, fascinating towns, and villages set in a beautiful landscape. In 50 Gems of Northamptonshire local author and historian Will Adams explores fifty unmissable gems that make this county special. Northamptonshire has remarkable examples of Saxon churches, such as at Earls Barton; glorious country houses, such as Castle Ashby; and fascinating historical connections, not least at the ancestral home of George Washington at Sulgrave Manor. Natural delights such as Pitsford Reservoir, battlefield sites, and the legacy of canals and railways all feature in this journey through one of the most enchanting areas of the country.
