Colin Crosby Heritage Tours

Northamptonshire Delights Tour (A Coach Trip in Northamptonshire)

The "Northamptonshire Delights Tour" is one of the many Coach Trips devised and led by the Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours, who runs excursions throughout the year.

These excursions are a most enjoyable way of soaking up some Local History.

It is one of the morning trips, which are very popular with people who would rather not be out all day.

The coach leaves St. Margarets Bus Station in Leicester City Centre at 9.30am, and is expected back about 2pm.

The format for these trips is that one stays on the coach most of the time, while Colin gives his inimitable commentary, but about halfway round, usually about 11.30am, a stop is made somewhere nice, where one can buy coffee, tea, cakes etc.

On this particular trip, some of the many interesting places in Northamptonshire are viewed and discussed. Among the sights which might well be included are the amazing Rushton Triangular Lodge; the Saxon church at Brixworth; the jolly Wicksteed Park at Kettering; the splendid stately home Boughton House; and the Eleanor Cross at Geddington.
