The Far Cotton History Group meets every Tuesday during term time from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at the community centre adjacent to Far Cotton Recreation Ground on Towcester Road, Northampton, NN4 8LG.

There is a subscription of £2 per week payable on the day, which includes refreshments, as well as a warm welcome. Each week we try and arrange a speaker that will talk about aspects in some way relating to Far Cotton. We also set up study groups to research various aspects of Far Cotton’s past and have produced a book and DVD. We intend to complete other projects like this in the future. We regularly have a group of up to 50 people, so come along and contribute. Newly found pictures, documents or recordings are shared with group members. Old memories are stirred and new avenues of study are opened.
