Brigstock is a village and civil parish in the English county of Northamptonshire. It is to be found south-east of the town of Corby. Administratively it is part of the district of East Northamptonshire. Surrounded by the remnants of the royal forest of Rockingham and neighbours Fermyn Woods Country Park. Brigstock is an ancient settlement, dating back to the Bronze Age or Saxon period. Several properties in the village appear in the Domesday Book (in which Brigstock is referred to as "Brigstoc") and many Roman relics have been found in and around the village. The village cross, found in the heart of the old village, was erected as a monument after Elizabeth I passed through the village. The Parish Church shows remnants of a 10th century tower. During the middle ages, Brigstock was an administrative hub for the Rockingham Forest, and was granted a market charter in 1426. The first school in the village was endowed in the 17th century, and whilst that building has gone the historic centre of the village contains many buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries. There are 49 listed properties in the village. Brigstock is one of the largest villages in the region.
