The ridge on which present day Rothwell stands, overlooking the gentle Ise Valley, has witnessed the comings and goings of successive generations. By the Middle Ages, Rothwell or "Rowell" as it is known locally, was already a town of importance, dominating the then lesser settlement of Kettering (a state of affairs which persisted until the arrival of the railway at the latter). A charter, granted by King John in AD 1204 permitting a weekly market and annual fair, confirmed the trade. Both market and fair, called "Rowell Fair", takes place on Market Hill during the week following Trinity Sunday. The Fair is a very festive occasion with stalls and entertainment attracting visitors from far and wide. Early risers can hear the traditional Proclamation read by the Town's Bailiff at 6.00am outside the Parish Church on Trinity Monday.

Today, Rothwell is a bustling town of character with some 7,500 inhabitants. There are many active societies and clubs, a community centre and public library. Concerts are held from time to time in Holy Trinity Church, when audiences are entertained by a variety of musical talents and the church's renowned acoustics come into their own.

Armed Incident In Rothwell And Arrest Of Peter Campbell

Armed Incident In Rothwell And Arrest Of Peter Campbell

There has been concern expressed in the Rothwell community regarding an incident on Gordon Street, Rothwell that occurred on Saturday evening where armed police attended. I want to take this moment to reassure the residents of Rothwell that there is no further reason to be alarmed as a result of the incident on Saturday. Contrary to reports on social media there was no 'gun fire' and any noises that may have been heard would have been as a result of entry by police into the property. More »
