  • No Dogs on Charles Cowper Playing Field

    Please note, dogs are no longer allowed on the Charles Cowper Playing Field (CCPF),

    The Parish Council has given much thought and discussion to this issue.  It believes the decision to be in the best interests of all those using the CCPF.

    The installation of the excellent new playground equipment has significantly increased the number of visitors to the field.  The combination of many excited children and understandably exuberant dogs is one that poses a real risk - to the children, to the dogs and those responsible for them.

A History of Boddington

10 to 12 Shillings a week with beer!

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).

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.
