St. Edmund stood on Wellingborough Road. Demolished in 2007, this photo is an old family photo, from Hannah Plowman's collection. There seems to be remarkably little on-line about this church, but this source says it was consecrated in 1852. A photo is available here. The bells were taken to a new church in New Zealand - read the story here.
