In ‘the county of squires and spires’
Within walking distance of the town centre, these stunning new homes in Burton Latimer are just 4 miles from Kettering, 5 miles from Wellingborough and 18 miles from Northampton. With beautiful countryside in between, Centurion Grove enjoys a great location. Here, you and your family can enjoy a lively local community, excellent shopping and leisure facilities, fine schools, plus excellent road and rail links.
There is archaeological evidence of settlement in the area during the Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman period. Mentioned in the Domesday Book, it was known as ‘Burtone’ prior to the Norman Conquest, with Latimer being added as a result of the local le Latimer family of the 13th century. The town grew during the 19th century around the ironstone quarrying, clothing and footwear industries, and during the 20th century Weetabix set up a factory, still here today.
Burton Latimer is a thriving town offering a range of modern facilities and a fine selection of shops, supermarkets, pubs, bars, cafés and restaurants. Further amenities include day nurseries, schools, a medical centre, library and post office, while the lively community supports a host of clubs and societies.
