How the scheme will look when it's finished

John Bancroft has been using a drone to film the site just off the A45 since work started, with this latest footage being taken early on Saturday morning.

It shows how the major retail and leisure development is taking shape ahead of the first phase opening next Spring.

This latest footage shows the progress being made on the main structures, which will house many of the shops, as well as the car parking areas which can be clearly seen from the air.

The video also shows work progressing on the area near to the waterside.

As well as being available on Youtube, Mr Bancroft’s drone footage has been shown on a screen in the Rushden Waitrose store which is just across the A45 from the former Skew Bridge site.

The footage also includes some great views looking across Rushden and the surrounding area.

Once finished, the 244-acre site will boast names such as H&M, Primark, New Look, River Island, Joules, L’Occitane, Jigsaw, Phase Eight, Clarks, Tiger and Costa Coffee as well as numerous restaurants.

The leisure and tourism destination is expected to create about 2,500 jobs.
