Nice place to looses. Hour
Jun 2021
Although the venue is still very much work in progress it’s a decent place to stop for a while. A short walk along the canal followed by browsing in the available shops. The antiques shop is interesting and a very good book shop. There is a pleasant cafe in the book store for tea and cakes. The brewery offers street food and beer.

In all quit interesting and worth a visit if in the area

Beautiful antique and collectibles, some crafts. Very well presented. Pleasant to wander round for an hour. Lovely location. Plenty of parking, toilet facilities. No cafe on site. One minute from A5.

Home to Vintique Limited antiques and collectables

Vintique Limited... a superb ground floor collection of antiques and collectables. Each time we visit there are new things on show.
You can easily lose an hour browsing with free parking alongside the historic canal and Royal Ordnance Depot which adds to the experience.
Highly recommended.

Brilliantly unassuming

With a Grade II location steeped in history and found in a sleepy but pleasant village in Northamptonshire, the Ordnance Depot is full of small businesses and antique galleries and open to the public to explore. A true hidden gem with a mix of rustic character and ancient charm.

A Neglected Gem. Ruined By Heavy Industry.
Feb 2020 • Couples
A very neglected Gem ruined by dead cars and HGV lorries dumped all over the place.
If you think your coming for a wander round a retail venue, you will be very surprised!
The vintage and antique centres are both nice enough, can’t comment on the coffee shop as despite the advertised times saying it was open, it quite definitely was closed, leaving the only catering onsite a Burger Van.
The visitors centre was tiny, managed to drag it out to 15 mins.
The rest of the site appears to be abandoned cars in various states of disrepair, and large Lorries and HGVs thundering in and out.
It’s a compete shame as this could be a lovely retail/workshop area for small light businesses but seems to have been taken over by Car repair and Lorry storage which isn’t in keeping with the type of place it’s trying to be.
Interesting to visit, but probably wont be back for a second visit.

Unique facility
Jan 2020
Have now made two visits here recently. The Visitors Centre is well worth a look as are the Antique shops and café. The latter a bit "taters" in the winter months, it has to be said, but welcoming. The antique shops are really interesting with fascinating and proper antiques on display. I am a member of a drama group that hopes to perform some productions here later in the year, and found the whole facility very atmospheric and hope that our dramatic ideas for the space become reality.

retracing history
Dec 2019
my parents were stationed here during the 40's so this was a memorable visit for me, retracing their steps. Loved the bookstore and the antique shops. so much potential in all those other buildings and the surrounding grounds. Look forward to watching its progress. The visitors centre is interesting but the guide wasn't very enthusiastic.

Small with work in progress
Dec 2019
Interesting museum, antique centre, art gallery, huge second hand book shop and welcoming cafe. Very much WIP but worth a couple of hours, if only to browse the bookshop and the antique centres.

A word of warning - the bookshop and cafe are up steep steps - but are worth the climb.
