This local parade is adjacent to Market Walk shopping centre. Fronting pedestrianised Abington Street this main thoroughfare is home to the town’s core large space occupiers. Northampton’s local economy is dominated by the service sector which accounts for 76% of local employment. The town’s position between London and the Midlands, and its proximity to the M1, have led to Northampton becoming a major distribution hub.
Northampton benefits from excellent road communications with junctions 15 and 16 of the M1 motorway approximately 5 miles to the west of the town centre.
