I would say you'd be very lucky to make it off the plane, through the terminal and out in 15 minutes. I would instead get the train to Milton Keynes, and then the X6 bus to Northampton. Either that or stop at Rugby and bus from there as Hornet said in the other thread.

Thanks Flip will give it a shot !. If I don’t make it can get the train and get the 10.30 NX455 from Milton Keynes to Northampton ?. Is the coach station far from the train station in Mylton Keynes ?. Says the bus goes from Milton Keynes Coachway M1 Junction 14 ?.

Coach station is a 20min bus ride from MK. The X6 however goes straight from the MK Central Rail station
