The village of Wootton lies 3 miles south of Northampton town centre separated from the neighbouring village of Hardingstone by the B526 Newport Pagnell Road. Except for the church, little of the village dates earlier than Stuart times and there are many brick cottages of equivalent age to the stone houses found within the village, which now backs onto several modern housing estates including Wootton Fields and the area previously occupied by an army barracks. Local amenities are plentiful and include community centre, working men's club, medical centre, pub/restaurants, hotel, shop, butcher, chemist, Waitrose, Wyevale garden centre and primary school. Secondary education is provided for at the newly built Caroline Chisolm School. Well placed for commuters, the nearest main road link is M1 J15 less than 2 miles away via the A45, whilst Northampton also offers a mainline rail service to Birmingham New Street and London Euston via Milton Keynes.
