Cotterstock St Andrew


The Parish

The parish of Cotterstock lies in northeastern Northamptonshire just a mile north of the market town of Oundle and just west of the A606 road which connects Oundle to the city of Peterborough. Cotterstock is a linear village built beside a narrow lane which leads to a crossing of the River Nene where there is a mill. Cotterstock was always a parish with a small population with around 200 parishioners living in an area of just under 700 acres. The area is largely arable surrounding the village with cereal production dominating on a series of rolling low hills, the parish lies about 20 metres above the sea despite being well inland from the nearest sea. Cotterstock has been around for quite a while and receives a compact mention in Domesday Book which mentions 5 ploughs and the land belonging to "The Men of Peterborough Abbey".

The Church

St Andrew's church lies at the eastern end of the village close to the mill and river. The church is set behind houses accessed by a narrow unsurfaced lane. The church has architecture of many differing dates from a Norman doorway, a Decorated style chancel (described by Pevsner as "sensational"), to a largely Perpendicular style tower. For Pevsner to describe the church as "thrilling" indicates that it is a special building which graces the village.
