Three Bridges Road, Long Buckby, Northamptonshire, NN6 7EP

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Long Buckby has a history going back approximately 1,200 years to the Vikings when all of northern, central and eastern England came under the Danelaw. The mound remaining of a castle built by Sahir de Quincy in the 12th century remains. The village name is of Nordic origin, with ‘by’ meaning settlement or village while ‘Buck’ is derived from ‘Bec’ (pronounced ‘becker’ in old Norse) for ‘stream’ or ‘brook’. The village is recorded in the Domesday Book as Buchebei, its affix possibly coming at a later date in reference to the length of the village.
