Our parish doesn't just cover the new housing that's sprung up recently in this part of the town. Upton parish spans an area as far as the former St Crispin's Hospital site, off Berrywood Road in Duston to the sustainable Upton Park development off Weedon Road, neighbouring Sixfields. Some 3664 people live in the parish, according to the 2011 census.
