Geddington is a village and civil parish on the A4300, previously A43, in north-east Northamptonshire between Kettering and Corby. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 1,503.It contains what is thought to be the best surviving Eleanor cross. The monument dates from 1294, when the crosses were raised as a memorial by Edward I (1239–1307) to his late wife, Eleanor of Castile (1244–1290). There were originally 12 monuments, one in each resting place of the funeral procession as they travelled to Westminster Abbey. Three now remain; the other two being in Hardingstone (near Northampton) and Waltham Cross, with a more recent replica at Charing Cross in London.The parish's population at the 2001 census was 1,504 people.The village was also formerly home to a Royal hunting lodge which was used as a base by monarchs for hunting within the Royal forest of Rockingham. The building has subsequently been lost; however, the 'Kings' Door' within St. Mary Magdalene's church in the village remains - it was the entrance through which the King could enter the building while staying at the lodge.
