Kettering is a Northamptonshire town situated on the banks of the River Ise, a tributary of the Nene. The town can trace the origins of its name back to an early Romano-British settlement to the north of the current town, as well as an Anglo-Saxon settlement to the east of the medieval village. The first documented reference to Kettering is in a charter from King Edwy in 956 AD granting 10 "cassati" of land to Aelfsige the Goldsmith. The main period of growth for the town was during Victorian times with the expansion of the Boot and Shoe industry. The arrival of the railway also brought other industry to the town. You can still visit Wicksteed Park on the southern edge of the town. The park was donated to the city by Charles Wicksteed, a wealthy Victorian industrialist who designed and manufactured a revolutionary steam plough. Much of his wealth was donated to good causes, including this pleasure park for the enjoyment of Kettering residents and especially for their children. Whilst in Kettering you could also visit the Kettering Museum and Art Gallery, or Boughton House, one of the finest houses in Northamptonshire. Alternatively you could try Rockingham Castle and Kids Kingdom.
