A historic Northamptonshire district

One of the most significant historic locations in the district is Borough Hill, which was once the site of a substantial Iron Age hill fort. Some remains of the fort are still visible to this day, and it in fact one of the largest of its kind found in Britain. During the 18th century the area was often used as a coaching stop on trade routes, but this died out with the development of the railway in England.

Because the railways largely bypassed Daventry, the area suffered a period of decline in the 19th century – a potent reminder of how the way in which an area is connected can affect its overall economic success. In the 21st century, arguably the most important form of connectivity is internet connectivity.

Broadband in the District of Daventry may be in need of improvement in some areas. Some premises around the centre of Daventry town are only receiving connections of between 3Mbps to 6Mbps, while some parts of Everdon, Staverton and Norton area also receiving speeds below 6Mbps. Residents in north-western parts of Daventry, Long Buckby and Weedon Bec on the other hand appear to be getting much better connections speeds of 20Mbps, indicating that improvements are starting to filter through in the area. Further infrastructure upgrades may be needed to deliver a more consistent online experience across the district.
