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


There is evidence of Iron Age dwelling in the southern part of the village  and  a Roman Villa to the north of the village. The 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.

The Brixworth Heritage Trail will take you on a short walk to see thirty buildings of interest.
