Walgrave

Walgrave is a village and civil parish in the Daventry district of the county of Northamptonshire in England. The village centres around St Peter's Church, a sandstone spired church.

Down the road from St Peter's is the 18-century Baptist chapel. Although the Baptist church was founded before 1700, the present chapel was built in 1786 in typical Northamptonshire non-conformist style, being slightly wider than it is long. Built of the local brown limestone, with a gate guarded by two yew trees, it clashes a little with the attached brick-built Sunday School of 1899. The former graveyard is presently being converted into a pleasant garden area.

Other notable features of the village include the [http://www.royaloakwalgrave.co.uk Royal Oak public house] with its collection of Real Ales and the newly-installed village sign on the main green. The Royal Oak has been an inn since 1840, though the building itself is much older. The Royal Oak has a thriving skittles team and hosts [http://www.walgravemen.co.uk McMOW] (the Monday Club for Men of Walgrave) every Monday in the main bar.

Walgrave is home to one of England's oldest football teams. Formed in 1896, Walgrave Amber is the only team other than the national team sanctioned to use three lions on its team crest. The street immediately adjoining the football pitch is named Amber Drive after the team. Their inspirational captain and playmaker is Billy "Pepe Reina" Ling
