Titchmarsh is a village and civil parish in East Northamptonshire, England approximately 6 miles south of Oundle – close to junction 13 on the A14.
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 medieval church, the site of a medieval 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.
Support @ Titchmarsh

In the village we have a number of people who fall into these categories and it is likely that many will choose to self-isolate. Most people who do so are likely to know someone who can collect food and medicines for them but some may not.
As you will have read in the Titchmarsh Times, the Parish Council has tasked the Titchmarsh Emergency Response Group to co-ordinate the village’s support network. They, together with other key representatives have come together to form the Support @ Titchmarsh group. The five members are:
