One of the biggest towns in England is Northampton and it has more than 200,000 residents. The twon dates back to the Iron Age but it was not well known until medieval times. During the 11th century is was turned into a Norman stronghold. Defensive walls were erected by the Normans all around the town. Remains of these wall can still be viewed in the street patterns all around present day Northampton. The Norman King held his royal court there because the Normans had a castle there too.
There were two battles fought in Northampton in medieval times. In the 1300s the Jewish people in the town were kicked out and killed during a dark period in the cities history. In the 1500s a huge fire struck the town and then again in 1675 the town had another fire known as the Great Fire of Northampton. After the Great Fire the town was completely rebuilt. During the rebuilding the Northampton became famous for its productions of shoes which boosted its economy into wealth.
This wealth continued to grow quickly with the introduction of the Industrial Revolution and the invention of trains. During this time many railways were built through Northampton. This allowed for easier access to the town. Thanks to this today's Northampton has a thriving economy. This growth had a brief slowdown in the 20th century but during the 60s there was another population growth that has continued today making the projected population to be over 300,000 very soon.
In 2000 the town request to have its status change to a city but was denied. Although in 2006 the town was labeled a government expansion zone with plans to build 36,000 new homes there in the near future. There are also plans by the British government to make Northampton a serious regional center.
