From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Upper Catesby is a hamlet in the civil parish of Catesby, Northamptonshire, about 3.5 miles (5.6 km) southwest of Daventry. The hamlet is about 550 feet (170 m) above sea level, at the top of a northwest-facing escarpment. The population is included in the civil parish of Hellidon.

In 1389 Upper Catesby was recorded as Overcatsby. It is a shrunken village. The modern hamlet has only a handful of 19th- and 20th-century houses, but is surrounded by numerous earthen features showing where cottages and the main village street had been. Most of the fields around the former village still have clear ridge and furrow marks from the ploughing of the medieval arable farming with an open field system divided into narrow strips.
