Syresham

UK travel information

The village of Syresham in Northamptonshire is notable for the many grade II listed buildings in the area, these giving a good idea of the history of this picturesque and attractive location.

With just a small population and facilities that are quaintly described as including a post office and public house, it may seem that Syresham does not have much to offer the visitor, yet it is not only a perfect example of a well preserved English village, it is also surrounded by historically important woodlands that were once the hunting grounds of a series of English kings.

These ancient woodlands are managed by the Forestry Commission and include areas of archaeological interest that hark back to the medieval period and are, as a result, very important in heritage terms. On a more modern note, Syresham is close to the famous motor racing circuit at Silverstone, the traditional home of the British Grand Prix and a site of pilgrimage for motor sport fans each year.
