Welcome to the Titchmarsh Village Website

The village, known in Anglo Saxon times as Ticceanmersce (Ticca's Marsh), has links to many national historical events including the Civil War and the Gunpowder Plot.

The first poet laureate John Dryden spent his childhood here. The modern day village is a thriving community which boasts a mediaeval church, the site of a mediaeval fortified manor house, a village school, community shop, clubroom, public house, and playing fields with a pavilion. Many of the houses are built of local limestone, several of which are thatched and a number listed.

    An outdoor history lesson

    Titchmarsh hosts the U3A

    Did you see that large group of people strolling purposefully through the village last Tuesday, and did you wonder who they were? They were members of Wellingborough U3A, the University of the Third Age. They were the latest group to visit the village to discover more about our fascinating history. Using the Heritage Trail leaflet, they focused particularly on the impact of the Lovell and Pickering families on the village. And some of the information that Ian and Terry were able to provide was hot off the press, Clive Carter's latest forensic analysis of old maps and documents providing some surprising and very exciting revelations. More on this at a later date. [...]
