Out and about - Northamptonshire

I know I am a bit late updating this blog but there has been a lot going on.  Here are some of the places I went to during my weekend away in Northamptonshire.   Firstly, I stayed in a place called Stanwick, a very pretty village with a friendly community.

During the weekend we went to the Triangular Lodge, Rushton, which is basically a triangular lodge.  The building, rooms and some of the windows are all triangular in shape.  
We then went off to Lyddington to see the church and the Bede House.

There is a lovely stained glass window in the church but also above an inside door there is a glass engraved view of the church.

It was then time to have our picnic so it was off to at Rutland water.  The church at Rutland looks quite amazing and there was also a boat race. 
Finally we called in on Uppingham another picturesque town.
