Big Green (once known as Great Green) is a picturesque cul-de-sac leading to a footpath across the fields. Different types of houses and wide greens make this a particularly pleasing residential road.
Warmington is a vibrant Northamptonshire village close to the border with Cambridgeshire at Elton. Surrounded by countryside, it has a Post Office and general stores, butchers, the Red Lion public house, primary school and village hall. It boasts a 13th century church and many listed buildings, including a watermill and a dovecote. The Nene Way footpath runs through Warmington to the village of Fotheringhay, where Richard III was born and Mary, Queen of Scots, was executed. The A605 used to wind its way through Warmington village, with lorries thundering past the pub on “the Warmington bends”, until the bypass was built in 2002. During the road works, an archeological dig unearthed a 1500-year-old skeleton at Eaglethorpe, which is thought to be the oldest part of the village.
For further amenities, nearby Oundle offers an excellent range of independent shops, cafes and businesses, as well as primary and secondary schools, the Stahl Theatre and the Talbot Hotel. Within a 14-mile radius are Peterborough, Corby and Stamford, providing good links to the road and rail networks.
Set in a picturesque, convenient location, this is a great family home, offering exceptional, modern accommodation and a large garden.
