… situated in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside between Northampton and Kettering.
The Domesday Book recorded Walgrave as having some 51 inhabitants; the 2011 census reveals a population of 868 persons living in some 345 properties. Our facilities include the well thought of Primary School, the popular Royal Oak Public House, the Red Springs Pocket Park, St Peter's Parish Church and the Baptist Chapel, and a Village Hall and Playing Fields - both with new equipment. On the edge of the village is the Manvell Farm Fisheries & Tea Room.
Recent additions have included 'Local News' to highlight recent items of interest, and 'Good News' to share the not-bad news from Walgrave. Other pages, such as Local Services and our Local Initiatives have been updated and/or expanded, with plenty more on the way - so please keep coming back!
We hope the website will provide a useful source of information for both residents and visitors wishing to learn more about our community; we see this as a constantly evolving document designed to record past and present life in our village, whilst also promoting future events. But ... we need your help! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas, suggestions, historical information and pictures, current event details, photographs, etc. Contributions from younger members of the community would be especially welcome.
The Walgrave Village News, enjoyed since 1993, is compiled by Rose Knight, Patricia Ellis and Liz Gilbert. It is delivered to all properties in early March, July and November. The deadline for the March edition is Friday 9th June 2017 - to contribute please email them
