Today, if you pass the River Nene you would see KFC, B+Q, Carlsberg, flats, apartments, Carlsberg bottling factory and the canal. But if you passed this outstanding river 100 years ago, you would see Northampton Brewery, Cattle Market, Globe works, Sawmills and Timber yards. These days, you would hear cars, birds twittering to one another and you could probably hear Carlsberg in the background. 100 years ago, you would have heard the banging of some boats and the shouting of men calling for help to one another.
