Grand Designs

In 2022 we had a visit from Grand Design’s Kevin McCloud and his film crew to capture some introduction footage and b roll of the surrounding area for a Grand Design home episode they are filming in Northamptonshire. While the episode itself is not about the tower it does provide a stunning location to introduce the viewer to Northampton.
