Situated on the vibrant Wellingborough Road, this branch predominantly covers the popular district of Abington. The area is well known for its period properties with a large proportion built either during the Victorian era or within the 1930s-1950s period. These properties often provide a wealth of character in addition to generous room sizes, high ceilings and large windows. They can also offer the interior design or DIY enthusiast great scope for improvement.
