'Brixworth is set in the rural county of Northamptonshire and has a rich historical heritage. There is evidence of a Roman Villa to the north of the village and its Grade1 listed Saxon Church is widely regarded. Many of the buildings in the older part of the village are built of Northamptonshire Ironstone. Ironstone quarries were worked in the fields around the village until the late 19th century ... The History Society meets in the village hall on the third Thursday of the month for presentations and talks given by visiting speakers. New members and visitors are welcome.'

'Long Buckby  Museum was opened in 2000 with the help of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.  The museum gives you an insight into the history of the village and surrounding area, it is of interest to any person looking into aspects of village life, people and events.'

Founded 'by birding enthusiasts in Northamptonshire as a means of sharing the pleasure of wild birds and birding. We try to cater for all levels of interest from local birds to world-wide birding. We have members interested in recording bird sightings, in ringing, in doing regular surveys or bird counts, in photography and in travel. We meet on the first Wednesday of most months for an indoor meeting ... In summer we hold a couple of these meetings at a local birding site'.
