'Delapré is one of the most beautiful public gardens in Northampton and its grounds and the gardens can be enjoyed at all times of the year. This attractive area of 8 acres lies in the southern part of the town just off the main London Road, with open parkland of about 500 acres adjoining the Gardens. At the southern end of the Delapre estate lie Delapre Woods. These were originally cleared and planted when the gardens were laid out. Some fine oak, sweet chestnut and beech remain from this planting.'
