As we remember the late Mike Ingram on the day of his funeral, we are reminded of his passion for history in this podcast about medieval Northampton. It's well worth a listen.

@richardjclinton I know you’ve probably already listened to it, but I can’t recommend enough @HistoryHit podcasts #GoneMedieval & #NotJustTheTudors with @MattLewisAuthor @sixteenthCgirl & collaborators. I loved the Northampton - the heart of England episode. @DelapreAbbey is certainly a gem!

On the twelfth day of Christmas Delapré Abbey gave to me… a Twelfth Night cake🎂 Traditionally the end of the 12 days of Christmas were celebrated with a large, rich, fruit cake, decorated with sugar and icing. Baked into the cake was a hidden element, a dried bean!
