Find out more about Caxton Place
Caxton Place is Longhurst Group’s new development in Boston, Lincolnshire. It offers two and three bedroom homes, available through Shared Ownership and affordable rent.
We spoke to New Homes Officer Abby Evans to find out a bit more about the development and its attraction…
There’s some interesting history about this site – what can you tell us about that?
Caxton Place is being built on the site of the former Magnadata printing firm in Boston. Magnadata produced the first ever magnetic strip tickets for British Rail and its customers included the London Underground, New York Metro and Sydney Rail Authority.
Why have we decided to call the development Caxton Place?
With being located on the former Magnadata printing firm site, we wanted to retain some of that history in the name of our new development. After lots of thought and consideration, we decided to use the name Caxton after William Caxton, the man who brought printing technology to England through the first ever printing press.
Can you tell us a little about Caxton Place and the homes it’ll offer?
Caxton Place is a fully-affordable development made up of 47 homes. These will be a combination of two and three bedroom homes, with 21 available for Shared Ownership and 26 being made available for affordable rent.
What are some of the highlights going to be on the development and what’s on offer in the surrounding area?
St Botolph's Church - or 'The Stump' - is one of Boston’s most well-known landmarks and definitely worth a visit! It’s most famous for being the largest parish church in the whole of England! The nearby Sibsey Trader Windmill is also one of the few remaining six-sail windmills in the country.
If you want to get active, there are plenty of cycle routes and golf courses in the area and we can’t forget Boston Central Park which, in the late 18th Century, was used as a private deer park before being made public in 1919.
When are the new homes on Caxton Place likely to be ready?
We plan for the show home and visitor centre at Caxton Place to be ready in the Spring of 2022 and we’re looking forward to welcoming potential new homeowners to have a look around and reserve their property.
