Nene Court Shopping

Visitor Info

Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and engaging. Design & illustration for brands, publications, and people.

Nene Court is an independent, retail park situated in Wellingborough in the county of Northamptonshire. 

Originally, the Wellingborough Gas Light Co. built the site towards the end of the Victorian era as a gas works with retort house, gasholders and more. Then during the First World War, it was temporarily used as a hospital for wounded soldiers.

The location also produced gas for the town’s supply, as well as hydrogen for the barrage balloons during World War Two and many of its original historic features can still be seen around the site.

During the early 1990s the site was purchased for a trailer manufacturer and Bestbuys Outdoor Store, which was re-locating from smaller premises in Wellingborough.  Later in the 1990’s some of the early Victorian buildings were converted for retail shops and the site has grown over the years.

Today, Nene Court has been lovingly renovated and restored to now house an exclusive array of bespoke boutiques and food outlets. There is ample free parking creating an ideal shopping environment for all ages.

Nene Court, The Embankment is just off the A45 and open seven days a week with free parking!
