It is easy to see the attraction of Market Harborough with its charming town centre dominated by the steeple of St. Dionysius Parish Church rising directly from the street. Next to the church stands the Old Grammar School, a small timber building dating from 1614. The ground floor is open, creating a covered market area which has become the centrepiece of the town. The nearby square is largely pedestrianised offering fabulous shopping and an abundance of restaurants surrounded by buildings of varying styles with many unspoiled Georgian buildings.
Merging with the villages of Little Bowden and Great Bowden, which continues to retain a strong village identity, there is easy access to the A6/14 and M1 and St. Pancreas can also be reached in just over an hour. Events such as a full-scale outdoor production of Noye’s Fludde (Noah’s Flood) by Benjamin Britten featuring 130 local Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland school children, as the closing highlight of the 2017 Summer Festival, ensure Market Harborough is at the centre of a vibrant community.
