The name of the town translates as “rushy valley.”
Rushden’s growth has been fueled by a variety of industries, including lacemaking, farming, and, most notably, shoemaking and related trades. Rushden had over 100 boot and shoe factories in the mid-1900s, but today there are only four shoemaking companies left.
Sanders and Sanders is one of the most well-known, producing boots for the British Army as well as several other defense departments around the world. Some of the decommissioned factories have been converted into apartments, and MPs’ support for government assistance has been limited. Today, the town’s industry, like that of many other towns in England, is diverse, with the majority of it concentrated in an out-of-town industrial estate. Rushden’s town centre shopping has changed significantly, as has the industry, though there are still many shops. Rushden is home to the county’s oldest toy store. A short branch line railway opened in 1893, connecting Rushden and Higham Ferrers to the Midland Main Line. The line was decommissioned in 1959. The trackbed was converted into a pocket park in 1991.
The Rushden Historical Transport Society now owns the former Rushden railway station, which houses a museum and a real ale bar. The society frequently hosts special events, such as an annual three-day transport cavalcade. The society’s goal is to rebuild the branch line that connects Higham Ferrers and Wellingborough.
Rushden also has a privately owned museum, which is located in the town’s Hall Park. Between the months of May and October, it is open.
Rushden Hall is the town’s oldest domestic building, having been owned by a number of families over the years, including the Sartoris and Pembertons families. The hall now serves as the town council’s headquarters, and some of its rooms are available for rent. It is located on 32 acres (13 ha) of land that is now a public park (Hall Park).
Hunters Walk, an ITV police drama series from the 1970s, was filmed on location in Rushden and the surrounding villages.
