Training in Northampton

Northampton is a market town and civil parish in England’s East Midlands. It is the county town of Northamptonshire and one of the major towns in England. The town has grown steadily since the millennium’s turn. Northampton was classified as a government expansion zone in 2006, with fresh growth encouraged by the West Northamptonshire Development Corporation (WNDC), an unelected quango that has sparked a slew of rehabilitation projects around the city.

Rail

Northampton railway station is on the West Coast Main Line’s Northampton Loop, and West Midlands Trains provides services southbound to London Euston and northbound to Birmingham and Crewe. In addition, Avanti West Coast operates two daily routes to London. Until 1966, the station was named as Northampton Castle because it was built on the grounds of the old castle of the same name. The anticipated return of the Northampton Castle name following the station’s refurbishment in 2015 did not take place.
