Property Types & Homes in Corby
Corby was designated as a new town in 1950. The old Corby village dates back many centuries before. Most of the housing in the town has been built during the early post war years. This came with the development of the steel works.
The steel works really developed in the early 20th century. Having begun construction of their plant nearby to the area, Stewarts and Lloyds were faced with the problem of housing their required new workforce, an expected 1650 people. This figure swelled to some 4000-5000, many of whom had migrated from Scotland with the company. Funded by a 90% loan from the Halifax building society , Stewarts and Lloyds made an arrangement with the Ministry of Health and the Northamptonshire County Council enabling the first 800 houses to be built.
Bessemer Grove was the first street of these houses, completed in the summer of 1934 and located to the south of the old village close to the church. These would be some of the last houses built by Stewarts and Lloyds in this area. The steel works were nationalised by the labour government in the early post war years.
Corby new town grew rapidly in the 1960’s and 70’s, but the ultimate demise of the steel plant in the 1980’s brought uncertainty to the area.
Post steel works brough new investment into the town with new industry and housing around the outskirts of the town. Areas of re-claimed land from past iron ore workings became new shops, infra structure and homes for an expanding population.
Post millennium has seen huge new residential development on the southern side of the town with new schools, tech colleges and infra structure. The town centre has been regenerated with new shops, cinema and an international competition sized swimming pool.
Corby goes from strength to strength.
