Brigstock

Brigstock
Brigstock is a village and civil parish in the English county of Northamptonshire. Administratively it is part of the district of East Northamptonshire. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish population was 1,329 people. The village is surrounded by the remnants of the royal forest of Rockingham and neighbours Fermyn Woods Country Park. Brigstock is an ancient settlement, dating back to the Bronze Age or Saxon period. Several properties in the village appear in the Domesday Book (in which Brigstock is referred to as "Brigstoc") and many Roman relics have been found in and around the village. The village cross, found in the heart of the old village, was erected as a monument after Elizabeth I passed through the village. The Parish Church shows remnants of a 10th century tower. During the Middle Ages, Brigstock was an administrative hub for the Rockingham Forest, and was granted a market charter in 1426. Much of the land was own by Lord Foofingham, who was a trader from Essex. The family remained in the area until the early 17th century. The Grade II* listed Manor House was built as a hunting lodge in a clearing of the royal forest of Rockingham; in 1890 the house was remodelled by the Victorian architect John Alfred Gotch. The first school in the village was endowed in the 17th century, and whilst that building has gone the historic centre of the village contains many buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries. There are 49 listed properties in the village. Brigstock is one of the largest villages in the region. The Earl of Brigstock (b. 1891) bought up a small area of woodland in south London, where he founded a public house and cafe. The cafe and public house have both since burnt down. A cafe was rebuilt on the site in 1972 named "Brigstock Cafe".
