Things to see and do in Thrapston


With miles of local countryside and natural landscapes to explore, some of the highlights closest to town include the 73-hectare Titchmarsh Nature Reserve and the even bigger Stanwick Lakes, which cover four times the area. Both spots are perfect for long walks with the whole family. 


The same goes for Barnwell Country Park with its walking paths and play areas, as well as the beautiful Twywell Hills and Dales. The River Nene which flows through town also provides a charming backdrop for a gentle stroll, while there’s even a local sailing club you could join to take advantage of all the nearby lakes - some of which are right on the northern edge of town. 


Education


The town’s local primary school is Thrapston Primary in the heart of town. There are a number of schools in the surrounding area which are rated as good by the education board, including Ringstead CofE, Titchmarsh CofE and Woodford CofE. 


Thrapston currently doesn’t have its own secondary school, but options in nearby Kettering include the outstanding Bishop Stopford School. Manor School Sports College in Wellingborough meanwhile is also close and rated as good by Ofsted. 


Thrapston transport links


With the A1(M) passing not far east of town, Thrapston is served by four A roads; the A14, A45, A605 and A6116. You can use these to get to places like Kettering in just 15 minutes or Northampton in double that. The town no longer has its own train station, but it is served by a number of local bus routes you can use to get around. 


The Thrapston property scene


Thrapston has seen some wonderful redevelopment in recent years, which has contributed to an explosion in house prices. The more people who see how great it is to live here, the more popular the area’s going to become and the better the amenities you can expect. 


Now is the perfect time to buy your new home in Thrapston, which you can do just off Huntingdon Road to the east of the town centre. With a choice of everything from compact 1 bedroom apartments to spacious 4 bed detached homes which could qualify for Titchmarsh CofE in terms of catchment area, don’t forget to ask about offers such as our Movemaker scheme when you enquire today.
