'Ashby St. Ledgers is a small Northamptonshire village which is located north-east of Braunston and is probably most famous as the place where the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 was hatched - one of the ringleaders being a staunch Catholic called Robert Catesby who owned the Manor House. The village has quite a few really old and interesting buildings including quite a few picturesque thatched cottages and barns.'
