Northampton is the county town of Northamptonshire in the East Midlands of England. It rests on the River Nene, about 67 miles (108 km) north-west of London and 50 miles (80 km) south-east of Birmingham. One of the largest towns in the UK, Northampton had a population of 212,100 in the 2011 census.
After the World Wars, Northampton’s growth was restricted until it was designated as a New Town in 1968, speeding up development in the town. Northampton unsuccessfully obtained unitary status in 1996 and city status in 2000; the town continues to broaden with numerous locations undergoing metropolitan renewal. According to Centre for Cities information in 2015, Northampton had a population growth of 11.3% in between the years 2004 and 2013, one of the ten greatest in the UK.
The royal connection to Northampton Castle ended up being less substantial, and by the time of the English Civil War, Northampton was decidedly pro-Parliament.  Though Spencer Compton, Earl of Northampton, was a royalist (Cavalier) and backed King Charles I, the people of Northampton supported Parliament and Oliver Cromwell’s republican Roundhead army. The town had a long history of religious dissent from the Lollards and Puritanism acquired a strong hang on the town. The corporation of the town, having currently chose not to supply soldiers to the King in 1632 or to pay the infamous ship cash tax in 1636, petitioned Parliament in 1642 versus papists and bishops.
When war broke out in 1642, the town willingly ended up being the primary Parliamentarian fort for the south-east Midlands location with the previous royal castle as its head office. In 1643, Prince Rupert attacked Northampton with roughly 2,000 males, however was beaten back at the North Gate of the town. Oliver Cromwell visited in 1645 and General Fairfax marched from the town to Naseby, where Charles I’s Royalist army was decisively beat.  Over 4,000 pairs of leather shoes and 600 sets of cavalry jack-boots for the Parliamentary armies were produced in Northampton during the Civil War, and a more 2,000 for Cromwell’s New Design Army in 1648. Until well into the 19th century, the shoe market grew around the town with little production workshops established in the surrounding areas.
The War ended with a Parliamentary success, leading to England becoming a Commonwealth, which lasted a years. Following the restoration of King Charles II in 1660, he took revenge on the town by ordering the damage of its walls and partial demolition of its castle in 1662, given that it did not support his daddy Charles I and his cavaliers.  After that, the castle was used as a court and a gaol, however its physical condition aggravated. The new council of the town had to pay â‚¤ 200 to have its charter renewed as well as needed all officials to swear the oath of obligation and some validated by the Crown.
Sessions House was one of the first structures built after the Great Fire of Northampton (1675).
The town centre was additional destroyed by the Fantastic Fire of Northampton in 1675, caused by stimulates from an open fire in a thatched cottage by the castle. The fire spread eastwards by strong westerly winds and taken in three-quarters of the town centre in 24 Hr. Matters were gotten worse due to the fact that the majority of structures were mainly made from wood and covered with thatch. An approximated 600 structures were damaged, amounting to â‚¤ 150,000 lost. Hardly any endured the fire, apart from buildings made of stone, like the Welsh Home on Market Square, integrated in 1595, and Hazelrigg House in Mare Fair, integrated in 1662.
The destruction resulted in an Act of Parliament for the rebuilding the town.  Local individuals and businesses assisted to raise around â‚¤ 25,000 to the restoring of the town centre based around the marketplace Square. Streets were widened and buildings made of brick and stone and tiled to avoid such devastation again. In an act of reconciliation, King Charles II contributed lumber from the royal forests of Salcey and Whittlebury to help with the rebuild. In 1678, the Sessions Home and what is now County Hall were amongst the first buildings to be finished.  A Georgian town with new homes, shops and workshops ultimately outgrew the old medieval town destroyed by the fire. In 1741 Edward Cavern opened Marvel’s Mill, the world’s very first cotton mill to be driven by a water wheel.
A long-term military presence was developed in the town with the completion of Gibraltar Barracks in 1797.
By the end of the 18th century, Northampton had actually become a major centre of footwear and leather manufacture. In 1801, the population was 7,020; it more than doubled to 15,351 in 1831, credited to the fact that there was fantastic demand for shoes caused by the Napoleonic Wars of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. A 3rd of the adult males alone were shoemakers at the time. Northampton grew beyond the old town walls and market proliferated with the mechanisation of factories by the middle of the 19th century.

The Nene Navigation Company had actually formerly made the River Nene accessible from King’s Lynn as far up as Northampton in 1762, allowing low-cost transportation of coal and other items to the town, but in 1815, the Grand Union Canal reached the town, signing up with the River Nene, offering the town a direct link to the Midlands coalfields and to Birmingham, Manchester and London.
The first railway to be built into Northampton was a branch from the primary London-Birmingham line at Blisworth to Peterborough as a result of Northampton which opened in 1845 alongside the town’s first train station, Bridge Street station. This was followed by the opening of Castle station in 1859 on the site of part of the historic Northampton Castle,and later St. John’s Street station in 1872. The Northampton loop of the West Coast Main Line was integrated in the late 1870s. Castle station was reconstructed and expanded over the website of Northampton Castle, the remains of which were purchased and demolished in 1880 to make method for the products shed. Bridge Street Station closed in 1964 and St John’s Street closed in 1939,leaving only Castle station serving the town. It is now known simply as Northampton railway station.
Tram lines were likewise set in the town in 1881 and amazed in 1903.  An early omnibus service ran to Wellingborough, and considering that 1919 motor omnibus services went to towns around the town which brought buyers and sellers to the market.
Contemporary [modify] Following World War I, the shoe market was increasingly in decrease, in spite of the town’s factories supplying over 23 million pairs of boots to the militaries.  An overall of 1,700 guys from the town were lost of the 6,000 eliminated from the Northamptonshire Program.  The town broadened even more throughout the 1920s and saw the erection of Northampton Power Station, which supplied electricity to locations as far as Wolverton, up until its closure in 1975. Much council real estate was likewise built mainly to the east, north and south of the town, including Abington, Far Cotton, Kingsley, Kingsthorpe and Dallington– locations which had actually been incorporated within the borough’s limits in 1901. However, the population growth slowed down as people moved beyond its borders. In 1901, the population had expanded to 90,923; in 1931, the population was 92,341.
After World War II, Northampton significantly changed. In 1959, the M1 motorway was opened to the south-west of the town; in 1968, Northampton was designated a New Town. Both these occasions and the rail link assisted Northampton’s development as a commuter town for London. The Northampton Development Corporation (NDC) was set up in 1968 to substantially redevelop the town in partnership with the regional council, costs â‚¤ 205 million to construct brand-new real estate and commercial estates, at first in Lumbertubs, Moulton Park and Round Spinney to the east, followed by Briar Hill, Camp Hill and East and West Hunsbury in the south of the town, mainly to accommodate the overflow population of brand-new locals from the London area. In the town centre, older buildings were demolished and replaced or redeveloped for other buildings, including the previous Greyfriars bus station, the Grosvenor Centre, Peacock Place (now Market Stroll), shops, flats and hotels.
Although growth was slower than prepared, the population grew from 105,421 in 1961 to 157,217 by 1981, with 15,655 new houses added to the town in between 1970 and 1985.  The district boundaries also altered following a split of the Northampton parliamentary constituency into Northampton North and Northampton South in 1974. Northampton was reconstituted as a non-metropolitan district which also covered areas outside the previous borough boundaries however inside the designated New Town. The town tried for unitary status during the 1990s UK city government reform, however failed and stays a non-metropolitan district to this day, meaning it counts on a two-tier system of government.On Great Friday 1998, Northampton suffered serious flooding, particularly in the locations of Far Cotton and St James; two people were killed and thousands of houses were impacted.
Considering that the turn of the Millennium, the town has actually continued to broaden. Northampton obtained city status in 2000 and again in 2002, however failed on both events and stays a town.In 2006, Northampton became a government growth zone with new development promoted by West Northamptonshire Development Corporation (WNDC), an unelected quango, which has provoked a series of regrowth plans throughout the town. Some have actually been finished, consisting of the opening of the Radlands Plaza Skatepark and the development of Becket’s Park Marina just south of Northampton’s town centre, as well as the improvement of the town’s Market Square, the building of the new North Gate bus station, the redevelopment of the train station and the production of a Cultural Quarter. Current projects include the enhancement of Northampton’s waterside, the building of a brand-new Council headquarters, the restoration of Delapre Abbey, the expansion of Northampton Museum, the combining of the university into one new school in the area centre and the remodelling of both the Grosvenor Shopping center and Weston Favell Centre.
