About Chester Farm

Chester Farm Heritage Park is a £12.7m project funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and Northamptonshire County Council. By 2018 the many stories of 10,000 years of Northamptonshire heritage will be told on this extraordinary but little known site.

As well as being the site of a Roman walled town, there is 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.

Yes there is lots of amazing buried archaeology on our site, not least the whole of a Roman walled small town. https://t.co/5fqc0KXbmb
