WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO PARK?
In November 2018, most of the former college located just off Boughton Green Road in Northampton, England, was sold to Persimmon Homes. It has since been demolished, with redevelopment work ongoing.
Several buildings, various trees - including the old redwoods and their surrounding grass area - endure, as does the Gallagher Sports Field and the former East Halls - both still open and owned by the university. Hundreds of homes are being built by Persimmon, with many properties now occupied.
This voluntary project was set up by former students with a passion for Park, and we welcome anyone with an interest in the subject - current and former undergraduates and staff, local residents or those who are just curious to know more.
In 2021, Avenue Campus (including Newton) on St. George's Avenue was sold to West Northamptonshire Council, and will be managed by their arms-length housing provider, Northampton Partnership Homes (NPH).
The university's main base is now the purpose-built £330 million (GBP) Waterside Campus on Bedford Road.
