Podington village is mostly of old stone built properties, clustered around the church, with only a small expanse of modern buildings has been added during the 20th century. A plaque pays tribute to it being a regular winner in the "Best Kept Village" competition.

A school was opened in 1841. Most of the men were agricultural labourers working on the villages farms and the women were lacemakers.

Rushden Co-operative Society opened a branch here in 1910 and it was their Number 6 branch.

Podington Garden Centre was opened in 1976, lies discretely behind the main street.

Podington Co-op was branch No. 6 of Rushden Co-op
