An ancient town, Raunds dates back at least to Roman times. Excavations have also unearthed evidence of Anglo-Saxon and medieval buildings. The 13th century St Peter’s Church has impressive medieval wall paintings depicting the parable of the seven deadly sins and a superb broach spire. The town is most famous, however, as the home of the British Army boot.
