​Chester Farm from above

   10,000 years of Northamptonshire's heritage

A Roman walled town with evidence from the Mesolithic, Iron Age and Medieval periods, together with a complex of traditional farm buildings dating back to the 17th century.

At present much of this heritage is buried; our challenge is to bring it to life and tell its stories.

Follow the Chester Farm story as it happens.
