Remember, remember the 5th of November? Gunpowder, Treason and Plot. Well, the very same plot was first concocted just outside Daventry, in the picturesque village of Ashby St Ledgers. In a room above the still surviving timbered gatehouse of a beautiful Tudor manor, the conspirators gathered together to plan the demise of King James I and the blowing up of the House of Lords. After the plot was discovered, Robert Catesby and his fellow plotters took brief refuge at Ashby St Ledgers, before riding on to Holbeach where Catesby was shot and killed on 8 November 1605.
