Geddington is a village and civil parish on the A4300, previously A43, in north-east Northamptonshire between Kettering and Corby.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 Rockingham Forest. 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.The old main road runs through the village and crosses the River Ise by a spectacular mediaeval bridge. The bridge, built in 1250, has five arches and three pedestrian refuges. A more recent ford also runs alongside the bridge.
