Duston Sports Centre opens on former British Timken site

A new sports centre has opened in Northampton on a site which used to be the former British Timken Sport Club.

Duston Sport Centre on Cotswold Avenue has a sports hall, dance studio and outdoor pitches.

The centre is being run by Northamptonshire Leisure Trust, which took over managing many of Northampton Borough Council's facilities.

The trust refurbished the previous buildings which closed in 2001.

Ian Redfern, managing director of Northampton Leisure Trust, said: "We have been able to bring back some of the old clubs like the Aikido and Judo clubs who used the centre when it was run by British Timken."
