Harpole is located to the west of Northampton.
Proceed on the A4500 (Weedon Road) towards the M1 (Junction 16).
Several sets of traffic lights will be encountered, leading to a roundabout junction with the B4525.
Continue in the same direction (second exit) towards the M1 but stay in the right-hand lane (if possible)
Get into the ‘slowing lane’ on the right in order to take the first right turn.
Take care because this means crossing the dual carriageway, turning towards the ‘Beefeater’ (‘Turnpike’) Premier Inn.
Follow the ‘Northampton Road’ leading to the ‘High Street’ through the village, ignoring turnings,
until the church appears (ahead) on the left.
This should be at the junction of High Street, School Lane and Upper High Street at postcode NN7 4DH.
From the opposite direction, Harpole can be approached from the A5 at Weedon
(Watling Street), on the A45, passing through Flore and crossing the M1 at Junction 16, joining the dual carriageway A4500.
Take the left turn at the ‘Beefeater’ (‘Turnpike’) (before the roundabout for Kislingbury) and proceed through the village, as above.
