A conference looking at the Northamptonshire’s links to the kings and queens and how it benefits the economy is taking place on Friday.

Northamptonshire Heritage Week runs from today until the end of this week. The conference at Boughton House includes many of the sectors’ foremost leading lights in the UK taking part.

This combined with the county’s easily accessible location provides an excellent opportunity to place the county firmly on the heritage map through this week-long celebration.
