The Local Area Guide to Living in Oundle

The beautiful market town of Oundle stands beside the ancient River Nene in Northamptonshire and can trace its origins right back to the Iron Age. Today, many historical buildings still stand in Oundle, lending the town a quaint, historical feel. One such building that, unfortunately, failed to stand the test of time was Fotheringhay Castle, which used to stand 3.5miles to the north of the town. Mary, Queen of Scots was imprisoned, tried and executed at the castle in 1587, and her ghost is now said to haunt Oundle's Talbot Hotel. Thistle now grows on the site where Fotheringhay Castle stood and it is thought that these plants are descendants of those planted by Mary during her time there.

Today, Oundle is home to far less sinister activities than imprisonments and execution. In fact, the World Conker Championships have been held across the River Nene in the tiny village of Ashton since 1965 and manages to attract competitors from as far away as New Zealand and Australia.

Information about the local residents

According to the Census of 2011, there are 5,735 people that call Oundle home - although this figure may have increased slightly since then. Thanks to the quiet and laid-back nature of the town, it shouldn't really come as too much of a surprise that Oundle is a popular place for retirees. In fact, close to 20% of Oundle's population are of a pensionable age. The majority of Oundle's 2,127 households reside in either detached, semi-detached or terraced houses, of which most are owned outright or with a mortgage. The city of Peterborough is a mere 20-minute drive from Oundle, which greatly increases the number of employment opportunities for people living in Oundle.
