Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Northamptonshire  /  Oundle
Oundle is a town on the River Nene in Northamptonshire, England, which had a population of 5,735 at the 2011 census. It is 68miles north of London and 12mi south-west of Peterborough. The nearest railway station, Corby, is 9.3mi to the west.HistoryInhabited since the Iron Age, Oundle was originally a trading place and village for local farmers and craftsmen.The Saxon invasion saw the arrival of a tribe called Undalas which possibly meant undivided. It is the death place of St Wilfrid in 709 AD where he had consecrated a church as well as being the location of one of his monasteries. The current St Peter's Church occupies the same site as St Wilfrid's original church.Saint Cetta or Cett, a 7th-century saint, is the Patron Saint of Oundle. Very little is known of him, but according to the Anglo-Saxon Secgan Manuscript he was buried in the monastery at Oundle, near the River Nene, around 1000 AD and a chapel to him built in the 11th century, on the small knoll beyond the end of St Sythes Lane. The presence of this shrine and the market charter explain much of the growth of Oundle in the 12th century.
