Constituency profile

This is a socially mixed, entirely urban seat comprising residential suburbs. A large section of the constituency lies in the 1968 new-town development of Northampton, which sprawls north-east towards Wellingborough, north of the river Nene.

Since the decline of Britain's boot and shoe industry, the town of Northampton has become a major distribution centre and something of a centre for financial services. The Weston Favell credit union is here, one of the oldest in the country, while the Nationwide Building Society's links with the town go back to 1848.

Ms Keeble had taken the seat from the Conservatives in 1997 but her majority had been cut at each successive election. In 2010, Conservative Michael Ellis defeated Labour MP Sally Keeble narrowly in what was a three way split. He got 34% of votes to Labour's 29% and the Lib Dems' 28%.
