I asked around about the where abouts of the statue of the town's Radical MP Charles Bradlaugh. I was mostly met with blank looks and offered to the directions to the pub named after him
Finally, at the tourist information office-and after some research, I was directed to a small traffic island close to the cricket ground where the yellow statue stands.
Bradlaugh's battles rumbled on through Gladstone's second government and apart from boots and shoes he remains the most remarkable thing about Northampton. There is a portrait of him in the town museum
