One of things, however, that does make Oundle unique is the presence of a large public school, and whereas at Oakham, Uppingham or Stamford the schools are quite nucleated, here in Oundle the school is more diffuse in the urban structure. In certain parts of the town school buildings tend to predominate, but visually they are good neighbours being well mannered Gothic Revival. The parish Church, St Peter, has a beautiful tower and spire - a very suave piece of Decorated Gothic. The Roman Catholic church a the far end of West Street, which is by Arthur Blomfield, 1878-9, started off belonging to another denomination ('The Buildings of England' does mention which one), and like the school buildings is a well-mannered piece of Gothic Revival. A satisfying design, in fact, from a less than front-rank Gothic designer.
The Talbot Inn, the elegant War Memorial to the left looks, to me, as though it's by Sir Reginald Blomfield.
