The rapid survey and photography for the project was carried out by staff from the Cambridge office of English Heritage between 1999 and 2003, with financial support being received from Northamptonshire Heritage, the planning arm of Northamptonshire County Council.

The project aimed to analyse the architectural remains of the boot and shoe industry in Northampton whilst they were still relatively numerous and intelligible, associating these with the wide variety of hand and machine processes which they housed and identifying the shifting patterns of domestic, outwork and factory production which determined their location and form.

See also buildings files BF088118 (Barratt Shoe Factory) and BF097899 (City Buildings) which contain both material created as a consequence of the rapid survey and material from earlier individual surveys of those buildings.
