Duston Parish Council – Duston Sports Centre
The Duston Sports Centre in Northampton is a sport and leisure complex which contains a state-of-the-art gym, dance studio, sports hall, bar, function rooms and sports pitches. As well as fitness and dance facilities, the centre accommodates sports such as football, archery, martial arts and outdoor bowls.
The developement is built on the former Timken Sports Centre, which although largely destroyed in a fire, the original steel framework and concrete floor slab of the previous sports hall were left undamaged. These remaining features have been incorporated into the new complex, which substantially saved on cost as a result of the reduction in demolition.
The attractive two-storey building is also used for various local clubs and groups and has become a key asset to the local community.
