Location: Sudborough is located 3 miles north of the A14, to the west of the A6116. This attractive East Northamptonshire village with its stone and thatched houses is of architectural and historical interest, as such it is designated as a Conservation Village in order to preserve its rural character. Sudborough is recorded in the Domesday Book as Sutberg and is part of the medieval Rockingham Forest Royal Hunting Grounds, now protected as an Asset to the Historic Environment. The church of All Saints is believed to date from the 13th Century and has historical connections with the Crusades. There is an active community supporting the church, The Vane Arms public house and the village hall. The historic Market towns of Oundle and Thrapston provide local shopping and leisure facilities, as well as an excellent choice of schooling. Kettering and Wellingborough provide more extensive facilities, as well as main line rail travel to London St Pancras with journey times from 55 minutes.
