Barton Seagrave St Botolph


The Parish

The parish of Barton Seagrave sits in central Northamptonshire about 2 miles southeast of the large market town of Kettering. Barton Seagrave, whilst once a separate village, has now almost been absorbed into the town of Kettering of which it forms a southeastern suburb. Barton Seagrave formerly sat of the route of the A6 road which connected Kettering with Rushden, this road now bypasses both Barton Seagrave and Kettering in tandem with the busy A14 road which connects eastern England through to the motorway network. Prior to its 20th century expansion Barton Seagrave was a small agricultural settlement on the eastern banks of the River Ise. The Ise drains the parish southwards reaching the Nene at Wellingborough before heading for the North Sea through The Wash. Barton Seagrave is sited at around 70 metres above the sea in gently rolling countryside. Barton Seagrave parish was of a fairly typical size for a Northamptonshire parish, it covered just under 1,800 acres and would have supported around 200 parishioners. IN Domesday times Barton Seagrave was held by the Bishop of Coutances, it could offer 10 ploughs, some meadows and woodland and 2 mills.

The Church

St Botolph's church sits at the heart of the former centre of the village. The church is certainly an ancient one with many features from the Norman period so much so that Pevsner was moved to call it an "impressive Norman church" indicative of its largely preserved features from the 11th/12th centuries. Following a truncated version of the cruciform pattern (there being no transepts) with nave chancel and central tower this church is different from many in the county. There are later features, of course, the tower top is Perpendicular and there was a significant restoration in 1878 but much else is Norman or Early English in style and date. The church sits at the southern end of the "V" shaped St Botolph's Road in a slightly elevated position. A neat local stone wall surrounds and a paved pathway leads to the church, there are few impediments to photography within the churchyard.
