Medieval buildings in Weedon Bec

This is the Old Bakehouse in Church Street, Weedon Bec. Parts of it date back to the 16th century.

The village church is hemmed in between canal and railway embankments and suffers from an unsympathetic modern extension, but the west tower in Norman and its doorway and window are striking. The body of the church was rebuilt from 1825 and manages to look more interesting in this photograph than it did in the flesh.
