As the country mourns the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we take a look back at the occasions she visited Northampton and surrounding villages.
The Queen died at Balmoral on Thursday (September 8) at the age of 96.
The sovereign visited Northampton a number of times over the years, including in 1965 to see Churches shoe factory.
In 1982 she opened the Lift Tower and in 2012 she visited part of the county – including Corby – for her Diamond Jubliee. During this tour she visited Spratton where she was greeted with a Diamond Pie.
Here we look back at The Queen’s visits to Northampton over the years.
