The modern day town of Kettering grew up in the 19th century around the booming footwear industry. This gives the area a wide selection of residential offerings, from imposing, period, detached houses - built for factory owners, to red-brick terraces - built for the workers. As the industry grew, so further expansion enlarged the town and created new residential areas such as Ise Lodge and the Leisure Village, that bring the local housing styles right up to date.
Today, with an estimated population of around 54,000 people, Kettering is one of the larger towns in North Northamptonshire, whose economy has evolved and, due to it’s centralized position and excellent communications, is now based around the service and distribution industries. This positive positioning means the employment level in the area remains above the national average.
With good schooling, shopping, leisure and recreational facilities in place and benefiting from inward investment from the government and private commercial interests, the area is set to see substantial new residential developments. Being located on the Midland main line railway, Kettering has a growing commuter population who enjoy fast, direct links into London. The journey into St. Pancras International takes about one hour and joins with the Underground network and Eurostar services to continental Europe.
