There are many towns within Northamptonshire but as of yet no cities. Northampton itself applied for city status at the turn of the Millennium, but lost out to Wolverhampton.

Other destinations

Understand

Traditionally Northampton has been a major centre of shoemaking and other leather related industries. Shoemaking has virtually ceased, though the back streets of the town still show the pattern of small shoe factories surrounded by terraced houses for the outworkers. The main industries now include distribution and finance.
