Finedon is large village based only a few miles outside of Wellingborough. With a growing population of over 5,000 residents, there’s an ever increasing demand for property and houses for sale in the sought after countryside that Finedon has to offer. Let Barker & Bass estate agents show you the best properties and find you the perfect home in this historic village.
Finedon is home to many historic buildings. The most notable building in Finedon's history was the Volta Tower, built in 1865 by Mr Mackworth Dolben. Unfortunately, due to being constructed without mortar, the building collapsed in 1951. It was however an established local landmark when it stood. Finedon is also home to an unusual looking water tower; originally built in 1904 for just £1,500, it once supplied the water for the whole village. It is now a residential building with residents living on the ground and first floor.
Finedon is in the Borough of Wellingborough, although many of the inhabitants are anxious to assert Finedon's distinct identity and not be assimilated into the larger town of Wellingborough.
Finedon has a small Country Park – officially known as Finedon Pocket Park which was historically used as an ironstone quarry.
Nearby communities include Irthlingborough, Burton Latimer, Rushden, Higham Ferrers and Kettering.
