Event Navigation

Join Ian Aldis to learn about Wicksteed Park, Kettering at Roman Way Community Centre

In 1913, Charles Wicksteed, a Kettering industrialist with strong northern Unitarian roots from a prominent philanthropic family, purchased some land on the edge of Kettering to provide a safe space for families to go for recreation. It formally opened in May 1921. It remains to this day a large parkland area with space and attractions, including the recently listed 1926 water shoot. Wicksteed Park has pioneered children’s playground equipment. Ian Aldis will tell us the story of this special place.
