History of Northampton
The city dates back to the Iron Age, with many ancient settlements and sites with Roman roads all over the town. It first began as a Saxon village named Hamm Tun, meaning a meadow with good waters. There are many old castles along with the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Delapre Abbey. The town was the centre of many sieges. It was also well known as the most educated town of Europe, with the most literate people in the monasteries and the Nunnerys. It even had its own mint in the 10th century during the reign of Henry III and was the richest and most important town in the country during the 12th century, but by the 14th century, many parts were in ruins.
The staple industry of the town was shoe manufacturing, prior to which it was wool. There is a large Market Square with a superb Victorian fountain at the centre, surrounded by historic buildings that still retain the old world charm, though many of them have been converted into modern shops. It is well known for the Althorp House, home of Princess Diana’s brother, the Earl of Spencer.
