Description

Church of St Mary and All Saints, Fotheringhay

Taken from the 'Castle Mound' upon which once stood the Castle of Fotheringhay. Shortly after Mary's execution in its Great Hall it began to fall into disrepair and local people helped themselves to bits of its materials for their own use. At the foot of the 'Mound' near the river bank you can see a pile of masonry enclosed by a railing, this is all that remains. A plaque commemorating the death of Mary was placed there in 1913 by a historical society.

Very impressive octagonal tower. I now realize on reading the description that the Mary who was executed was Mary Queen of Scots. The church presumably is still much the same as it was in 1587 at the date of her execution. A sobering thought.
