Brixworth is set in the rural county of Northamptonshire and has a rich historical heritage.


There is evidence of a Roman Villa to the north of the village and its Grade1 listed Saxon Church is widely regarded.


Many of the buildings in the older part of the village are built of Northamptonshire Ironstone. Ironstone quarries were worked in the fields around the village until the late 19th century.
