This scheme is a redevelopment of the former historic Grenson's factory site in Rushden for 46 new affordable homes. The scheme is made up of two sites that span Allen Road. Whilst the majority of the former factory site has been cleared, some of the factory buildings are listed and have been retained and incorporated within the development - including the two storey facade facing onto Cromwell Road which now forms the frontage of eight new homes. There is also the single storey facade of the orginal buildings on the smaller site facing onto Allen road which now provides the frontage for four bungalows.
