St Mary and All Saints, Fotheringhay

The church of St Mary and All Saints was built in the 15th Century, close to Fotheringhay castle, which had been built as early as 1100. Today, the church of St Mary and All Angels is an impressive building. Built at the side of the river Nene, in picturesque countryside, the church dominates the area for miles around. The view coming in from Nassington, down a tree lined avenue is a particular favourite of mine, particularly on a gloriously sunny early Spring Saturday morning, with the sun just about managing to burn off the early morning mist. Richard III was born at Fotheringhay, and Mary Queen of Scots was held prisoner at Fotheringhay castle from 1586 until her execution the following year.   Close to the church is the area where Fotheringhay Castle stood. Nothing remains now except the Motte and Bailey on the banks of the Nene. Steps are built in to the side of this and it is possible to get on top of the mound, the reward being a great view of miles of beautiful East Northamptonshire countryside.
