More Details

Watch Tower House is a purpose-built mixed use ‘live/work’ development which combines residential, office, production and amenity space within an interconnected building. Originally designed and constructed in the early 1960’s, the building has been adapted and enlarged during the intervening years. In its current configuration, residential floor space predominates, with around 170 bedspaces currently being provided. The total gross internal floor space is 10,120sqm. The external footprint is 4,571sqm. The plot size is 32,629sqm (8 acres). Adjacent to Watch Tower House and to the west is an open field which lies within Green Belt. The field stretches from the rear gardens of houses in Rushden Gardens northwards to The Ridgeway where there is a dedicated access point from the road. In total, this area is some 8.3 acres. The open field and Watch Tower House are separated by an enclosed Public Right of Way, which extends from The Ridgeway in a southerly direction to Rushden Gardens. Located at the entrance to the open field off The Ridgeway and within the 8.3 acre boundary is a conference facility which can seat over 300 people. This highly specified building has its own sound system and video facilities, and the auditorium can also be divided with a movable acoustic wall. The building is currently being used as a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The combined area of the open field and Watch Tower House is some 16 acres. For further details of both this building and the open field, please see the dedicated page on this website here.
