A brief history of our church

On Sunday 6th  November 1938  the church was blessed and dedicated to Our Lady of Walsingham by Mgr. Laurence Youens, the then Bishop of Northampton. The door was opened with a golden key bearing the Bishop's coat-of-arms and presented by the architect, Mr. E. Bowes Norris, F.R.I.B.A.

 

The parish of Corby was formed from the parishes of Kettering and Peterborough, the church took a little over a year to complete with its original cost of £10,000.
