Harringworth Cross

Harringworth is a village and civil parish in East Northamptonshire extremely close to the Northants-Rutland border. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 247 people.[1]

It lies on the southern bank of the River Welland; the area is dominated by a railway viaduct, the Welland Viaduct (known locally as "the Harringworth Viaduct") that crosses the Welland and its flood plain immediately to the west of the village. For many centuries in medieval England Harringworth was associated with the Zouche family who were Lords of the Manor.
