Castle Ward Heritage Trail

Local historian, archaeologist and FoNC member Jack Plowman has put together a Castle Ward Heritage Trail which details a walk around Castle Ward, plotting a route between Marefair and Sheep Street. The trail takes in the castle’s Postern Gate, Saint Peter’s Church, Hazelrigg Mansion, the site of the Castle, Scarletwell, the site of Saint Andrew’s Priory and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

You can find the leaflet in Saint Peter’s Church, or download it now as a PDF.

Even if you’re not the outdoors type, the trail leaflet contains a lot of interesting and well-sourced information about Northampton’s history and is well worth taking a look at.
