Since the Industrial Revolution and the 20th century, the town of Northampton has grown closer and closer to the village boundaries, such that it is an outer district of Northampton, near to several other suburban areas. The village itself has also grown, and now includes, at its edges, several newer developments including Park Way, Graspin Lane, Pyket Way, Edgemont Road and Thorburn Road (often referred to locally as 'Beverley Hills'). Still, the village centre retain a distinct feel, and are clearly marked by the old boundary posts. Its most famous former resident was the late Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the structure of DNA.
