Wadenhoe is a delightful village in the Nene Valley between Thrapston and Oundle. The watermill is one of dozens which used to take their power from the River Nene, but virtually all have now been destroyed.

The River Nene is the slowest flowing river in England, and meanders through Northants and Cambridgeshire on its way to the Wash. The church spire at Achurch in Northants can be seen in the distance.

The Grade II-listed Hardwater Mill is just to the west of Wellingborough, on the River Nene. It was apparently mentioned in the Domesday Book. Milling ceased in 1946 and it is now a private residence. The present buildings date from the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

The present bridge was built by George Portwood of Stamford in 1722 under the orders of the Earl of Nottingham, then proprietor of the estate. Adjacent to the bridge over the River Nene at Fotheringhay are the remains of the castle in which Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded in 1587. The castle itself fell into disrepair and was demolished in 1627.
