An overview of Northampton

Northampton is a large market town and local government district in the East Midlands region of England. It is about 67 miles northwest of London on the River Nene, and is the county town of Northamptonshire. The districts population was estimated to be 202,800 in 2007. Northampton is the 21st-largest settlement in England and the UK's 3rd-largest town without official city status.

History

Remains have been found here dating back to the Iron Age. A farming settlement may have begun in the area around the 7th century. The town became significant in the 11th century, when the Normans built town walls and a large castle under the stewardship of the Norman earl, Simon de Senlis. The original defence line of the walls is preserved in today's street pattern (Bridge St, The Drapery, Bearward St and Scarletwell Street).

Northampton supported the Parliamentarians during the English Civil War. For this reason the town walls and castle were later torn down on the orders of King Charles II as punishment. The railway station in Northampton stands on the site of the former castle, and used to be called "Northampton Castle Station".

The town was destroyed by fire in both 1516 and 1675 and was later rebuilt as a more spacious town. In the 18th century Northampton became a major centre of footwear and leather manufacture. Only specialist shoemaking companies such as Church's and Trickers formerly in nearby Earls Barton, survive at present.

Northampton's growth was accelerated in the 19th century, first by the Grand Union Canal and then by the railways. The first railway to be built into Northampton was a branch from the main London-Birmingham line at Blisworth to Peterborough through Northampton which opened in 1845. Northamptonís population greatly increased during the 1960ís when rail link and the M1 both lead towards London. This transport link to the South East has proved attractive, with already high house prices in and around London rising rapidly since the 1990s causing many people to move increasingly further away from the area in order to commute from more reasonably priced housing.

Leisure

Formal parks include: Abington Park; The Racecourse, home in summer to the Balloon Festival and originally used for horse-racing until 1904; Delapre Park; Bradlaugh Fields; Becket's Park, named after Thomas Becket as are nearby Becket's Well and Thomas Š Becket pub. There is a park around an Iron Age fort in West Hunsbury.

The main shopping centre is the Grosvenor Centre built in the 1970s. The town has one of Britain's largest market squares, dating from 1235. Outside the centre the Weston Favell Centre built in the 1970s is in the eastern district together with various out of town retail and leisure parks.

Contemporary Culture

The Derngate and Royal theatres are located in Guildhall Road, opposite Northampton Museum and Art Gallery. They were renovated and reopened in 2006, at a cost of £15 million. The Deco is a 900-seat theatre/conference centre based on the Grade-II listed former Cannon Cinema, in Abington Square used mainly by the voluntary and charitable sector. The Deco and the Northampton Jesus Centre share a Grade II listed Art Deco building, formerly the Cannon cinema.
