The Our Corby Festival of 1951

By Michael Mahon

In 1950, with a population of 18,000, Corby was designated a New Town with William Holford as its architect. By 1951, he prepared the development plan with a car-friendly layout and many areas of open space and woodland. In 1952, Holford produced the town centre plan and in 1954 the layout for the first 500 houses.[7] The town now underwent its second wave of expansion, mainly from Scotland.
