Macildowie have been ‘Building Great Futures’ in Wellingborough since 1993. Wellingborough is a market town in North Northamptonshire situated 11 miles from Northampton on the north side of the River Nene. In 2011 the population was 50,577, it is a built up area. There are approximately 2,500 registered businesses within the boundaries. A Lot of the town centre was redeveloped during the 1970s, when it grew rapidly from London overspill.
Wellingborough was established in the Anglo-Saxon period, and it is surrounded by five wells; Redwell, Hemmingwell, Witche's Well, Lady's Well, and Whytewell. The oldest building in the town is All Hallows Church, which dates back to 1160 and was most likely built by Saxons and monks. The most economically significant part of the geology of the area is the Northampton Sands ironstone formation, which is Jurassic-age sand. Iron ore quarrying was a major industry in Wellingborough from the 1860s up to the 1960s.
The town's population massively expanded in the 1960s as agreements were signed between the Urban District Councill and London County Council to rehouse the overspill population of London. Wellingborough is now home to over 2,500 registered businesses, and the economy was originally based on footwear and engineering, however, it is now diversifying to wholesale, logistics, and service sectors, which are providing new opportunities for employment.
