Local shops include a co-op, tthe post office run by Chris and Margaret (lovely people) as well as various other little boutique shops, pubs and restaurants dotted around the village.
It is unclear where the name Crick comes from. Some believe it was derived from the Celtic word ‘Kreik’ which means rock or cliff, other believe it may have come from the Middle Age term ‘Creic’ which could have been a derivation of creek – i.e a small stream, the original small streams in the area would have provided water for the early settlers.
The history of the village goes all the way back through the times of the Doomsday Book all the way back to the Iron Age! Remains of Roman history have also been found in the area.

”“I’ve specialised in selling property in Crick and the surrounding villages for a few years now and I am amazed at how much involvement we now have in the local community, you soon get to know a lot of people when you’ve been this job for long enough – I love it.
Don’t get me wrong, I also love selling properties in Daventry, Rugby, Northampton and other areas in Northamptonshire and Warwickshire. In fact more recently we have sold properties all over the country. However, I have a particular close relationship with Crick, West Haddon and Yelvertoft, I just love these villages and it is a pleasure to spend so much time in them.“Jamie CampbellCrick Property Expert
