Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Originally the location for a Roman settlement, followed by the Saxons, the town probably derives its name from Higham, a high hamlet or hill dwelling, and Ferrers from William de Ferrers, a 13th century Lord of the Manor. Gaining its Charter in 1251, it was the oldest borough in the county prior to the 1973 boundary changes. Higham Ferrers was once the site of a castle, but although little remains of this today, the town retains much medieval architecture, including a beautiful main street of stone built houses and a traditional market square. St Mary’s Church, with its magnificent spire, is a splendid feature of the town, and the historic Bede House and Chantry Chapel are nearby.

Amenities include a fine range of parks and open spaces, a library, schools, doctors and dentists, while the local community supports many clubs, societies and activities covering a host of interests. It also has a swimming pool and leisure centre, while a £50m plan for a retail and leisure park near Rushden Lakes has recently been approved. For even greater opportunities for shopping, leisure and entertainment, Wellingborough is only 6 miles away, while the county towns of Northampton and Bedford are both around 15 miles from Higham Ferrers.

Lying on the edge of the Nene Valley and close to the Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire borders, living at Bishop’s Grange means you’re well placed for enjoying wonderful countryside and a host of rural activities. Within easy reach there are idyllic walks, heritage sites, country parks, nature reserves and picturesque villages. Boating and angling are popular on the River Nene and on the numerous lakes and reservoirs nearby, while a couple of miles away, Stanwick Lakes is a popular 750 acre countryside attraction and nature reserve offering year round activities for all the family.

Local Shopping

The centre of Rushden is just a mile and a half from Bishop’s Grange and offers further amenities, shops and supermarkets, including Waitrose. Today, an interesting mix of shops, pubs and restaurants are situated in the town centre and a Farmers’ Market, held on the last Saturday of each month, adds to the wonderful array of produce on offer.
