S.SEPULCHRE'S, NORTHAMPTON, AND THE ROAD AS IT PASSES WOBURN

S.SEPULCHRE'S, NORTHAMPTON, AND THE ROAD AS IT PASSES WOBURN

Northampton boasts the possession of one of the four round churches in England. It is incorporated in the nave of S. Sepulchre's (bottom). It was erected about the year 1100, probably by a crusader. The round churches imitate the Church of the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem, and this one at Northampton has a closer resemblance to the original than any of its three fellows. The small market-town of Woburn (top) in Bedfordshire lies a little less than five miles north of Hockliffe on the Manchester Road and adjoins the seat of the Duke of Bedford.
