Northampton has rather more going for it than is often realised. Its industrial exploits have left it with a unique townscape, at last being properly appreciated. It has medieval roots, some remarkable buildings and an important place in the pageant of English history. It also has star performers with a record of broad creativity that few towns of comparable size could begin to rival. Local author Anthony Meredith takes readers on their very own A-Z tour around the town's history, exploring the nooks and crannies, and along the way relating many a fascinating tale of the most interesting people and places. Fully illustrated with photographs from the past and present, this new A-Z guide to Northampton will appeal to residents and visitors alike.
