Town of Kettering in Northamptonshire, United Kingdom.

Kettering is a town in the United Kingdom just 2 hours north of London and about 30 minutes northeast of Northampton, on the west side of the River Ise. It is an administrative and historic county of Northamptonshire, England. The population of Kettering today is around 100,252 from a 2017 census. With the arrival of the railway during the mid-1800s, it owes much of its growth and history.

The town is rapidly expanding, this time as a result of the A14. It connects the M1 with several ports on the east coast. There are new housing developments and large industrial estates found along the outskirts of the town as a result. One interesting fact about the town of Kettering is that it is the home of Weetabix’s UK production.
