Outer wall and south east bastion, Bridge Street, Lower Weedon, Weedon Bec - Daventry

Defensive walls and bastions, early C19. Part of an extraordinary military complex built during the Napoleonic era. The whole site was underused for many years and was left in poor condition. It was sold in early 2013 and is now home to various businesses. The owner is considering further development. A condition survey of the most at risk elements of the site was carried out with the support of a Historic England grant. A repair strategy is being formulated.
