NOTES: Originally a collegiate church on which construction began in 1412 to plans laid down by Edmund, 1st Duke of York (d. 1402), and was completed in 1430. Work on the addition of a parish church, also in Perpendicular style, to the western end began in 1434 . Fotheringhay Castle, nearby and site of the execution of Mary, Queen of the Scots in 1587, was demolished by the Stuart monarchs in the 17th century and the church allowed to fall into disrepair. What remains today is the octagonal tower, nave and aisles of the 15th parish church.
