Caldecott Area Guide
Caldecott is a pretty village in the county of Rutland about 4 miles north of Corby in Northamptonshire. It is a small historic ironstone village surrounded by rolling countryside and close to the Eyebrook Reservoir nature reserve and Rockingham Forest. The village has an active community, hosting a number of clubs & societies and events, usually at the Village Hall and has a playground managed by the local community. The parish church of St John the Evangelist, dates back to the 12th century and is a focal point for the village, holding regular services. There is a public house - The Plough Inn - by The Green on Main Street, and the Castle Inn restaurant - on the A6003 Rockingham Road to the south of the village. Interestingly there was once a railway station on the southern edge of the village. It was named after the neighbouring village of Rockingham, which was considered to be of more importance at the time. The railway station closed in 1966.
