Our Daventry branch covers the historic market town itself and also the stunning villages of Weedon, Norton, Braunston, Newnham, Welton, Staverton, Kilsby, Barby, Ashby St Ledgers, The Catesbys, Willoughby, Badby, The Everdons, The Stowes, Farthingstone, Litchborough, Woodford Halse, Byfield and Eydon.
The town has benefitted from a significant amount of redevelopment over recent years, with increased availability of new jobs brought to the area by the rail freight terminal. As a result, the area now offers a vast range of property types and a number of modern housing developments. We are able to provide local coverage of these areas from our High Street office, with the added benefit of a supporting network of ten other Northamptonshire branches.
Daventry is a Northamptonshire market town that has been subject to a large amount of development since the 1950s and 1960s. Occasionally still known and pronounced locally as Daintree (alternative spelling Danetre), this old name for the town was mentioned in William Shakespeare's Henry VI, Part I which refers to "the red-nosed innkeeper of Daintree". The old centre retains many of its historic features including the ironstone built 18th Century church and Moot Hall and continues to hold markets on the High Street every Tuesday and Friday. Of course, modern retailers and facilities now sit alongside such. Daventry offers schooling at both primary and secondary levels as well as a leisure centre, library, dentist, GP surgeries, optician and hospital facilities. Transport links are excellent due to its close proximity with two M1 junctions (16 and 18), the A45 Northampton to Coventry ring road, A5 Watling Street and A361 Banbury road as well as mainline rail access from Rugby (10 miles) and Long Buckby (5 miles) stations.
