Wootton is a mixture of the old village and extended area – a large modern housing settlement in Northamptonshire, three miles south of Northampton town centre. The old village hosts Water Lane which originally contained wells that provided the water supply. Amenities in the old village, include a local shop, doctors surgery, school and the “Yeoman Of England” public house. In the modern housing estate area, a supermarket, takeaways, estate agent and children’s nursery reside. On the edge of Wootton, heading to the town centre is a “Waitrose” supermarket and “Dobbies” garden centre.
