Good to see you in our home patch.

The view you photographed is towards the village of Grafton Regis. It has strong royal connections hence regis. Henry VIII visted and Edward IV met Elizabeth Woodville near Grafton whilst hunting in the royal forest of Whittlewood. She eventually became his wife but that is just the start of a very long story.

Just around the corner alonside the canal are some disused fish ponds that belonged to the Dukes of Grafton. The ponds supplied fish for the table.

You should also try the local pub, the White Hart. Its food is great!
