Arthingworth is a civil parish and village in the Daventry district of the county of Northamptonshire, England.[1]

Location[edit]

The nearest towns are Market Harborough about 4 miles (6.4 km) north and Kettering 9 miles (14.5 km) east via the A14 road which connects the town to the M1, M6 and M11 motorways.

Administration[edit]

The village has its own Parish Council.[2]

Buildings of note[edit]

The church of St Andrew dates from ca. 12th century.[3] There is a monument to a Mrs Jekyll (d. 1775).

Arthingworth Manor, a Grade II listed building dating from the mid-18th century, was left as a shell in 1967 revealing an older house of the Rokeby family; however a stable block remains, now converted to a house but incorporating the Manor House staircase.[4]

Between 1859 and 1960 the village was served by Kelmarsh railway station about 1 mile south-west of the village and running trains between Northampton in the south and Market Harborough in the north.
