Kingsthorpe Village

A tributary of the River Nene called the Naseby Source or Brampton Nene flows through Kingsthorpe Village to the west from north to south, joining the Nene west of the Carlsberg Brewery near the south bridge.

The village green retains a rural character, away from the main roads, overlooked by the parish church and vernacular cottages. Kingsthorpe formerly had three water mills, some evidence of which can be found in the countryside. The suburb's amenities are centred on the main A508 and A5199 roads that link central Northampton with Market Harborough and Leicester respectively.
