Northampton Boot & Shoe Quarter

The finest remnants of Northampton’s boot and shoe industry can be found in the area immediately to the north and east of the town centre (around Lower Mounts up to the Racecourse, Abington Square and down to the Billing Road).

This area has the highest density of boot and shoe factories, the greatest survival of buildings (around 70%) associated with the industry, and the widest range of building types in Northampton.

Further information on Northampton’s Boot and Shoe Quarter can be found on the Northampton Borough Council webpage here which includes the following pdf downloads: Appraisal and Management Plan, Conservation Area Guide and Conservation Area Map.
