A fascinating glimpse of Kettering life four decades ago has been revealed on a newly-released video.

A film of the town from 1971, shot on standard 8 film by Kettering Cine Club, has been uploaded to YouTube.

It shows a number of familiar buildings and landmarks, cars and motorbikes driving through the town centre and a very different-looking Wicksteed Park.
