The pace of change in Northampton is so fast that it is easy to forget how the town once looked, and how new communities have emerged from previous wastelands and green fields.

In our latest look back at the history of the town through the pages of Northampton Welcome to the Past, we take a view from above.

There is something special about aerial photographs and they always go well in the Chron whenever we get the opportunity to publish them.

We hope you enjoy this nostalgic look at Northampton. If you have any memories of the town that you would like to share, please send them to:
