The Holy Sepulchre is a Norman round church in Sheep Street, Northampton, England.
Simon de Senlis, Earl of Northampton, was responsible for making Northampton, England, a Norman stronghold by building a castle (now destroyed) and a town wall (approximately on the site of the inner ring road). It is also probable that he was responsible for the building of All Hallows Church by the market place in the centre of Northampton and the church of the Holy Sepulchre to the north.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Northampton is one of only nine round churches with a circular nave built in England. Today (2009), only four of these have survived. The church was founded in 1098-1100 by Simon de Senlis, Earl of Northampton, in thanks for his safe return from the Crusades. Its design was based on the original Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Northampton town is probably the best preserved of only four remaining circular or “Round” churches still in use in England and boasts the earliest of these crusading foundations as July 1099 AD, the very month and year when the 1st Crusade occupied Jerusalem. Other similar churches are to be found in Cambridge, in London, (off Fleet street, Temple church) and the tiny church of St John the Baptist near Halstead in Essex (1).
