Within the church there is (as of 2009) a curious antiquity. This is a 7 ft long whalebone, although tradition avers that it is actually part of the skeleton of a Dun Cow. This was a fabled beast from English folklore, and according to various versions of the story the Stanion cow was either killed or died of a broken heart after being tricked by a witch. Graffiti etched onto the bone indicates it dates from the 17th century.

Stanion is a village and civil parish in the county of Northamptonshire in England. At the time of 2001 census, the parish's population was 873 people, increasing to 1,252 at the 2011 Census. There is a Church of England primary school.
Special Constables possess all the same powers as full time warranted police officers and are provided with full training and equipment. They work with their full time colleagues, on a voluntary, part-time basis, performing duties ranging from supporting specialist teams within the force to making arrests on the streets. This really is one of the most exciting and dynamic voluntary roles available and is a unique and fulfilling experience.

Along the road in Stanion there's a school and two pubs. Whilst just four miles away, the regeneration of Corby is bringing a host of exciting new amenities to the area.
