A bold move

A new home.

Our team are delighted to announce that we have relocated our creative Northampton based offices to centrally located Royal Ordanance Depot in Weedon Bec, Northamptonshire.

The History.

Strategically and purposefully situated in the centre of England to be furthest from coastal invasion it was built for the services of His Majesty’s Ordnance and was used to store and repair small arms and cannon.

Even to this day the canal still runs through the centre of the site and businesses working at The Depot benefit from its central location. Originally the site included Royal Pavilions, an equestrian centre and barracks. It was an important and largely secretive arms distribution point for the next 150 years.

The Depot remained in operation throughout the Second World War and through to the 1950s. The site was decommissioned in 1965 and the buildings have remained under Grade 11 listing.

Throughout the ages The Depot has been serviced by different forms of transport including horse, a branch of the Grand Union Canal, railway and more recently modern day roads allowing free access to lorries and cars.

In modern times.

Today this former barracks and military storage base is now privately owned and has been restored to offer local businesses work spaces with a heritage and creative feel. The aim is to provide a safe, secure environment with a community feel, particularly for businesses like ours that are inspired by the heritage of this wonderful site.

The perfect location.

Steeped in heritage and set in a truly beautiful place of natural beauty, The Depot is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Weedon Bec and surrounded by a gated, high red brick wall.

As you enter the gates at the Clock Tower entrance you will see eight original storehouses arranged in two lines on each side of a branch of the canal, which is home to swans and perfect place to enjoy lunch in the Summer.

Come say hi.

We’d be delighted to show you around our exquisite new offices, or even show you where to find some of the finest local boutique shops and fine antique shops on site.
