Thanks to the Big Lottery Fund work is now underway to improve cycling links across Northampton. The focus of the project is the River Nene corridor which links residential areas and businesses to the town centre. For full details view our Connect 2 Route page.
Connect 2 and the Northampton Chronicle & Echo have been asking the public for their help. With the support of Sustrans, Connect 2 would like to erect a piece of public art along the cycle route celebrating local people, heroes, characters or animals. The art piece, known as a Portrait Bench, will be a focal point along the route but also a place to sit and take in the views.
Please view our Portrait Bench pageto see how the public have been helping to select the most appropriate figures to represent our historic market town.
