    Fix My Street
    Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) is closing down Street Doctor and moving everything over to a new system called Fix My Street.  Street Doctor will be unavailable from around 5:00pm on Monday and the new system will go live on Tuesday.  Current reports will be moved over so they shouldn’t have to be resubmitted and the old report reference numbers should still work.  Fix My Street is simpler to use and mobile responsive and it allows photos to be attached to reports.  The new system will be available via links at www.northamptonshire.gov.uk.  A direct link will be issued after go-live.

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.
