Steeped in history, Northampton is a thriving town at the heart of Northamptonshire, well-known for the part it played in developing a successful footwear industry.

At the turn of the 1800s, railways and canals helped to boost the town’s prospects, placing it on the map for those living further south. The town became an attractive proposition for commuters wishing to leave the rising house prices of the Home Counties behind and start a new life in the Midlands. 

Today, Northampton is a thriving, modern destination with a population approaching 200,000 (2017). With its industrial roots still paramount in the town, there is still much available land for redevelopment, and inward investment has made the area a focus for many modern housing schemes. These large developments offer an exceptional social infrastructure along with new building technology and attractive property prices. 
70 miles north-west of London and 50 miles south-east of Birmingham, the large market town sits a short distance off the M1 in the Nene Valley. Its valuable links to major cities provide a healthy stream of prospective buyers and renters looking to move to the area. 

With the University of Northampton and its new Waterside Campus taking pride of place in the town, the rental market is constantly evolving, creating a dynamic environment for those looking to develop their property portfolio.
