Earls Place

Earls Barton’s place in history is as a centre of the shoe and leather industry. Prestige shoemaker Arthur Barker started making his famous shoes here in his back garden in 1880 and later opened his factory in Station Road. Rebuilt since, it is now one of the finest footwear factories in Europe exporting quality shoes to the world, and occupying a 4.5 acre landscaped site, which includes the Museum of Village Life.

On entering the Earls Barton, its charming character is there to see. West Street, with its raised pathways, winds down to The Square, overlooked by the anglo-saxon All Saint’s Church, resplendent in the local honey-coloured limestone, reflected in many of the older houses. The tower once featured on a Royal Mail stamp.

The village’s wide variety of shops are to be found around The Square including the local butchers, a large Co-op, the post office, a florist, restaurants and pubs, also Jeye’s ‘The Apothocoffee Shop’, an attraction that defies description. Next to the village library is Earls Barton Primary School, rated ‘Good’ at its last Ofsted. There are no secondary schools in the village, but there are some highly rated state and independent schools in Wellingborough and Northampton.

Each year in August the village plays host to the Earls Barton Rally and Country Fayre, featuring country crafts, vintage vehicles and traction engines. Wider-spread leisure facilities include watersports at Billing Aquadrome and The Riverside Hub, a children’s activity centre.

Earls Barton is surrounded by open farmland, just off the A45 New Valley Way, a short drive from Wellingborough. Its town centre offering a variety of shops and restaurants around the main shopping centre - Swansgate, accompanied by a well established market that is present three times a week.

Northampton, to the west, claims to be England’s largest town and has much to offer, it is a thriving town for business due to its central position in the Country. It further boasts, busy shopping centres, top entertainment venues, including the Royal and Derngate Theatres and the impressive Forum Cinema, and museums. The suburbs to the east of Northampton that reach out along the River Nene Valley, afford excellent out-of-town shopping centres at Weston Favell and The Riverside Business Park.

For the commuter there are extensive rail connections offered from both Wellingborough and Northampton stations and with the close proximity to the M1 motorway between London and Birmingham, it has fast access to M6, M40, M42 and A14/A1 plus a choice international airports within an hour’s drive of the town.

About Developer


Originally formed as a Commercial Development Company (Greatline Developments), residential expertise was added in 2011 with the formation of the Mulberry Property Developments.

The Team of Directors bring a wealth of experience and expertise in delivering high quality schemes in both fields – having previously worked for major UK PLC property developers and house builders, they can collectively boast over 150 Years’ experience.

Building upon our strong reputation for delivery of high quality niche schemes, our aspirations are to become a Premier Regional House-builder regarded for the quality of the homes we create.

Our homes can be found in some of the best locations within our region; whether it is a townhouse or a family home in the country, you can be certain that each new home will be built to the same exacting standards that we are renowned for. Furthermore, throughout all aspects of the planning and development process we pride ourselves on our attention to detail, leading to each home being completed to a meticulous standard.

Originally trading as Greatline Developments the commercial arm of Mulberry Property Developments Ltd was established in 2004 and has since built a strong reputation for successful commercial development.

Operating principally in the Midlands, and notably North Northamptonshire, Mulberry’s developments have spanned sectors as diverse as large scale distribution warehousing, foodstores, leisure, industrial schemes and specialist developments such as car showrooms, car storage and driving test centres for the Driving Standards Agency.

Whilst remaining an entrepreneurial developer open to all opportunities, going forward Mulberry Developments’ focus is primarily within the industrial and logistics sector whilst geographically expanding into new regions including London and the South East.

Mulberry develops mainly for investment sale, and is comfortable working with development partners; as funding partners, joint venture partners or as owner occupiers.

Mulberry is equally at home developing speculatively or for occupier’s specific requirements.
