Where in the World: Other Holte Ends

In the second edition of our new feature looking at Aston Villa namesakes around the world, we find ourselves a little bit closer to home.

Last time out, we headed across the atlantic to California to check out the luxurious Villa Park – a 2.1 square mile city nicknamed 'The Hidden Jewel of the Orange County'.

Today, we head roughly an hour south of B6 to the Town of Northampton, where another Holte End is located. 

Where is this other Holte End?

Based a stone's throw away from it's famous River Nene and Abington Park, this cul de sac occupies roughly 20 fairly new detached and semi-detached properties.

Sixfields

How close to the nearest football ground?

Six miles away from Holte End is Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium. Villa have never played there, however, given it wasn't constructed until 1994.

Our last meeting with the Cobblers was a 1-0 FA Cup triumph in 1983, which took place at the County Ground.

How much land does it cover? 

The street itself is small, and no more than 400 metres or so in distance. Unlike our 13,463-capacity Holte End.

How much is it to live there? 

Being fairly new builds, house prices start from £275,000 and can rise to more than £400,000 in value.

Any other facts? 

Bizarrely, the street adjacent to Holte End is called Trinity Road, which also runs alongside our famous stand at Villa Park.

We're starting to think it's namer was a Villan...
