Harrington is a village and civil parish in Northamptonshire, England, administered by Kettering Borough and Northamptonshire County councils. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 154 people. The parish church of St. Peter and St. Paul is located north-east of the village itself.HistoryAfter the dissolution of the monasteries, the Saunders family became lords of the manor of Harrington. In the 17th century the manor house passed by marriage to the Stanhope and then the Tollemache families until it was pulled down in 1745 by Lionel Tollemache, 4th Earl of Dysart. A stone pillar from one of the gateposts now stands in the middle of Desborough.The site of the manor house is called ‘The Falls’ with the ‘Park’ adjoining. The Falls contains the remains of terraces, fishponds and a sunken garden, which may have had a fountain. The fishponds were constructed to supply fresh fish to the monastic house. Eel, bream, pike, and perch were bred in a series of ponds of varying size fed by channels. The gardens were laid out by Sir Lionel Tollemache, 2nd Baronet who married Hon. Elizabeth Stanhope, daughter of John Stanhope, 1st Baron Stanhope, around 1620 and inherited the estate in 1675. It is now listed as an historical archaeological site.
