Chester House Estate

10,000 Years of Northamptonshire History

Nationally significant site demonstrating 10,000 years of heritage, open daily.

The recently opened Chester House Estate, located in Irchester near Wellingborough in Northamptonshire, is a historically significant site that is free to enter for everyone. North Northamptonshire backing and a £14.5m National Heritage Lottery Fund has helped connect the people of Northamptonshire - and our visitors - to 10,000 years of county history.

With the community at the heart of all projects, we have created an accessible heritage attraction with year-round events, a state-of-the-art Archaeological Archive Centre, and farmhouse accommodation for visitors.

There’s plenty of land and history to explore. The site is open every day, with accessible parking which can be booked in advance.
