Oundle is an ancient market town on the River Nene in Northamptonshire, England, with a population at the 2011 census of 5,735. It is situated 68mi north of London and 12mi south-west of Peterborough. The nearest railway station is at Corby, 9.3mi west of Oundle.HistoryInhabited since the Iron Age, Oundle was originally a trading place and market 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 was a 7th-century saint and is the Patron Saint of Oundle. Very little is known of him, but according to the Anglo-Saxon hagiography of the Secgan Manuscript, he was from around 1000AD, buried in the monastery at Oundle near the River Nene, and a chapel to St Cett was 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.
