Road Closure – Northampton Road

Northampton Road in Brixworth is to be closed from 30th October 2017 until 8th December 2017 to allow for drainage installation and resurfacing of the road.

The closure is from Blackthorn Avenue going south and finishes at the existing south bound bus layby. Access to the allotments and the cricket club will be restricted, but if there is a particular event needing access the Contractor will endeavour to assist if possible. The Doctors Surgery will not be affected at all by the closure.

A plan showing the closure and diversion can be viewed here.


Work Starts on New Doctors’ Surgery


Brixworth Parish Council is delighted to see construction works begin on the new Brixworth Doctors’ Surgery on the Saxon Rise Estate. The sod cutting ceremony took place earlier today (Friday 6th October) formally marking the start of the building work.

This Surgery building is the result of collaboration between Barratt Homes, Brixworth Parish Council, represented by the Neighbourhood Plan Group, Daventry District Council, the NHS and Saxon Spires Practice and will be funded solely through developer community contributions rather than tax payer’s contribution. Brixworth Parish Council look forward to the Surgery building opening in early 2018 and thank everyone involved in making this achievement possible.

Councillor Alex Coles,Chairman of the Parish Council said’ Securing such a significant and much-needed improvement to Brixworth’s amenities is a fantastic achievement, and testament to the excellent working relationship forged between all parties involved. I would particularly like to thank the members of the Brixworth Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group whose tireless dedication drove this project forward on behalf of Brixworth Parish Council’.
