An old shoe factory in Wellingborough has been redeveloped to create six apartments.

The building in Vivian Road has been given a new lease of life with the creation of one and two-bedroom apartments.

The development has been named Cobbler's Yard

Development firm Vantage Homes is behind the project, after the company bought the building a year ago.

Prior to that, it was used by a firm to store tiles but was falling into disrepair.

Vantage Homes' director, Stefan Gavin, said they have named the building Cobber's Yard as a nod to the building's heritage.

He said: "The building was coming to the end of its life when we got it. It hadn't been used for a long time and neighbours were complaining about it."

All but one of the six apartment have now been let.
