This aerial photo captures the growth of Daventry, which began to really expand as a town in the 1960s. Many people moved to live there, for work or as part of the Birmingham overspill. New housing estates were built and their names often give clues about what was there before: Timken Way, Middlemore Farm, Lang Farm and Ashby Fields are a few notable examples. As well as houses, we can spot here a school, its playing fields and a golf course on the top right; apparently habitants on the nearby streets would often be dodging wayward golf balls!
Looking forward to Daventry’s first ever food festival! The Village Emporium Magazine Love Daventry BBC Radio Northampton Northampton Events Daventry Express
