Amplifying Greyfriars in Northampton

Closed 7 Jan 2024

Opened 5 Dec 2023


Help us amplify the future of Greyfriars’ Northampton by answering our survey!

At the crossroads between the Market Square and Roadmender, between the Cultural Quarter and the Racecourse, Greyfriars sits empty. A piece of Northampton that is calling out to be revamped into a meaningful open space, a neighbourhood for all. 


The area known as Greyfriars is situated at the heart of Northampton Town Centre.

It has been identified through the Council’s Masterplan for Northampton as a site to benefit from significant regeneration and showcase the town’s deep history. There is an opportunity to bring the area to life by reinventing existing structures and the general ground area to highlight the towns historic links to shoemaking, leathercraft, brewing, art and music to name a few.

West Northamptonshire Council is working with consultation experts, Deetu and lead architects, Studio Egret West,  to reimagine this area for today and tomorrow. We are now looking to hear your thoughts and ideas, and if you have any stories that help to highlight the history of the site.
