  • County Connect Bus Service Under Threat

    Northamptonshire County Council are currently consulting on removing all money paid to subsidise public transport in the county. If this proposal is confirmed after consultation, the County Connect bus service would end during 2018 and it is likely that many rural parts of the county will have either no or limited public transport in place.

    Cllr Ian Morris, County Council cabinet member for transport, highways and environment, said: “We understand that these proposals would have a big impact on the public and are changes in policy that we are bringing forward with a heavy heart".

    “However the financial situation in which the county finds itself in is so severe, we are having to make proposals that we really don’t want to make".

    “As has been widely reported we have made representations to government under the Fairer Funding campaign and believe that we need more money from central funds if we are to provide the standard of services in the county that the people of Northamptonshire really deserve.”

    If you would like to comment on these proposals, you can email the County Council: consult@northamptonshire.gov.uk or you can write to:

    Draft Budget and Council Plan Consultation,

A History of Boddington

The spelling of Boddington has changed over the centuries from Botendon in Domesday Book (1086) through Bottelendon (12th century Survey of Northamptonshire), and Budinton in the Calendar of Close Rolls (1244) to Botyngdon (1358), Botyndoun (1396) and Botyngdon (1428). When it became established as Boddington we do not know, but on some 19th century maps it was spelled with only one d. The origin of the name could be Botas Hill (dun) or, as Baker surmises, it could be compounded of Boten, a contraction of the Saxon plural of botl, a habitation, and dune or done, a down, which corresponds with the situation of the upper village.
