What there is to see and do

There is no better place to tell the story of Abington than in the building that was once the manor house for the extensive Abington estate. The galleries chart the history and development of Abington as it has grown from a medieval manor to an attractive leafy suburb of Northampton. It is designed to allow people of all ages to explore the places, the people who have made Abington their home, and their experiences past and present.
