Loddington  Northamptonshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Loddington like this:

LODDINGTON, a parish, with a village, in Kettering district, Northampton; 4 miles W of Kettering r. station. Post town, Kettering. Acres, 1,224. Real property, £2,892. Pop., 289. Houses, 60. The property is divided among a few. The manor belonged to the De Bands; passed to the Kinnesmans, the Syerses, and the Allicockes; and belongs now to Lord Overstone. ...

The Hall, or old manor-house, is a beautiful Tudor edifice. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Peterborough. Value, £500.* Patron, the Lord Chancellor. The church is late early English, very much altered; comprises nave, S aisle, chancel, and S chapel; has an early English tower, surmounted by a beautiful later English spire; and was restored in 1859. A curious coarsely sculptured ancient stone lies outside of the churchyard wall. A handsome school-house was built in 1863. Charities, £22.
