Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices.
Burton Latimers name is derived from the le Latimer family who lived there during the 13th Century. Burton Latimer grew in the 19th Century around the ironstone quarrying, clothing and footwear industries. A watermill that was used for grinding corn was converted and used at various times in the 19th century for the manufacture of silk, worsted and carpet weaving, followed by its conversion to a steam mill to make chicory, mustard, animal foodstuffs and flour. The mill was acquired in the 1930s and became the home of the popular breakfast cereal Weetabix.
The parish church, which is dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, was consecrated in 1147. It contains a number of mediaeval wall paintings, a 15th-century chancel screen and some memorial brasses. The church is located between the south arcade and chancel screen and features the coat of arms of the Boyvill family; it was probably placed there in the early 16th century to commemorate Richard Boyvill, his wife Gresyll and their children.
There used to be a railway station that served the town called Isham and Burton Latimer, sadly the station closed in 1950. Now the nearest railway station is at Kettering.
