Duston, as a settlement, dates back to pre- Roman times, possibly even prehistoric times, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book.
Originally a farming community, and then integral to the local iron ore mining industry, it has been gradually enveloped by the expansion of Northampton.
Today’s Duston, which sits within a conservation area, still retains much of its original village character with a number of local shops and a community feel revolving around the St Luke’s Church and the Duston Village Hall.
Transport links are excellent with a short journey to Northampton station providing links into
London Euston, Birmingham and Rugby. Equally, the M1 motorway is just a short drive away.
Local schooling offers a myriad of options for children up to and including secondary age in its pre-schools, primary schools and secondary schools. Local private schools can be found at Quinton House, Northampton High School for Girls as well as Spratton Hall and Maidwell Hall preparatory schools.
From Junction 15a of the M1 take the A5123 into Northampton. After a mile, and on reaching a roundabout, go straight over following signs for the town centre and Sixfields along the A5076. Go straight over four more roundabouts following signs for Duston. 300m after the fourth roundabout, take a left along Main Road following signs for ’Duston ¼ mile’. Follow Main Road around to the left and, on the left just before a mini roundabout with a war memorial set back to the left of them are the gates to The Elms.
