Thrapston Living

Thrapston is a small market town nestled along the River Nene between Northampton and Peterborough. Being granted its market charter in 1205, Thrapston has been able to keep hold of its history and many of the residents of the town are extremely proud of the area they live. A town fair takes place each year, a celebration and commemoration to the town getting its market charter. The first Saturday of the month between 9am – 1pm, the local farmers market takes place on Thrapston High Street and is a great place to meet others from the community and purchase goods from the local area.
The lakes in Thrapston are not only beautiful, they provide an excellent supply of walking routes. Whether you want to stroll along the rivers and lakes or sit and watch the world go by, there are many spots of natural beauty. Home to just over 6,000 people, Thrapston is a great place to live as it’s friendly and charming with superb links to local towns and cities.
