Pipewell, Northamptonshire - Abbey Church of St Mary

This is Northamptonshire's smallest church building, built in 1881.  Pipewell was the site of a Cistercian abbey established in 1143, but that was suppressed as part of the dissolution of the monasteries in 1538, and demolished soon after.

The churches in Northamptonshire listed on this blog in October and November 2018 were all visited during a weekend spent near Corby to commemorate the first anniversary of the death of Martin on 23 September 2117.  We think he would be pleased to know that his family are continuing his hobby, and would not mind our picture appearing on this page.
