Feeling adventurous? Live in/near Northampton?

From the week commencing 23 March until the end of August, wooden figures will be dotted around the town to create ‘A Knights’ Trail’, with each of the knights depicting the historical details of English knights from the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. These periods have been chosen as they relate to significant events in medieval England and Northampton, namely:

  • Signing of the Magna Carta in 1215
  • Second Barons’ War in 1264
  • Start of the Hundred Years’ War in 1337
  • Last parliament held at Northampton Castle in 1381
  • Battle of Northampton in 1460
