Northampton is one of the largest towns in the UK. The town centre was destroyed by the Great Fire of Northampton in 1675, caused by sparks from an open fire in a thatched cottage by the castle. The fire spread eastwards by strong westerly winds and consumed three-quarters of the town centre in 24 hours. Matters were worsened because most buildings were chiefly made of wood and covered with thatch. Local people and businesses helped to raise around £25,000 towards the rebuilding of the town centre based around the Market Square. Streets were widened and buildings made of brick and stone and tiled to prevent such devastation again. 18th and 19th century development saw much of the town rebuilt in Victorian splendour!
Northampton grew beyond the old town walls and industry grew rapidly with the mechanisation of factories by the middle of the 19th century. A third of the adult males alone were shoemakers at the time. Following the First World War, the shoe industry was increasingly in decline, despite the town's factories supplying over 23 million pairs of boots to the armed forces. The town expanded further during the 1920s and saw the erection of Northampton Power Station, which supplied electricity to areas as far away as Wolverton, until its closure in 1975. Much council housing was also built largely to the east, north and south of the town. After World War II, Northampton vastly changed. In 1959, the M1 motorway was opened to the south-west of the town and in 1968, Northampton was designated a New Town; accelerating development in the town. In the town centre, older buildings were demolished and replaced or redeveloped for other buildings. New Town status in and the M1 brought Northampton into a commuter town for London with associated modern housing.
As with the rest of the British Isles, Northampton experiences a maritime climate with cool summers and mild winters. Rainfall, at around 650 mm (26 in) per year is not high, though is often unpredictable, giving rise to flooding events such as 1998, but also short term droughts. Any property can be exposed to the risks of damage from woodworm, rot and damp, whatever its age, size or history however these kinds of problems are not always immediately obvious. In many cases it can take months or years before an issue is brought to light
