Hotels in Corby
A small village until the 1930s, Corby has grown beyond all recognition in the last 100 years. A few years after the start of the millennium it was the fastest growing town in England.
The advent of the steelworks brought enormous growth in the middle of the last century, including a large influx of Scottish immigrants, who brought their heritage with them. Even today, more than 30 years after the steelworks closed, the town is often dubbed Little Scotland. A sixth of the population are Scottish and there are Scottish social and sporting clubs, Scottish churches and an annual Highland Gathering with traditional Scottish sports, music and dancing.
