About us

A committed team creating a truly sustainable development in historic Oundle.

A vibrant community

Millers’ Field is on the south side Benefield Road, next to Clifton Drive and is within easy walking distance of the centre of Oundle.  Oundle is an historic market town on the banks of the River Nene in North Northamptonshire close to Peterborough. Oundle is famous for being the home of Oundle School and for its beautiful streetscapes and impressive limestone buildings. Oundle has great schools and a range of independent shops and eateries, with a vibrant and active community.  


The field is named after Robin Miller, Director of Music at Oundle School from 1954 who in 1965 purchased the field opposite Orchard House on Benefield Road, where he and his family lived.  Anne and Peter Miller are now seeking to develop Millers’ Field in accordance with their father’s wishes and would like both future residents and the local community to benefit from its development.

Ambitions for the site

Leave a legacy

in the form of an exemplar sustainable community.


Respect Oundle's heritage

through the use of an architecture that is considered and in context.


Create a strong community

through the provision of communal spaces and facilities and a highly collaborative design process.

Preserve the allotments

in perpetuity for existing users and as a long term amenity for the town. 

Enhance the public realm

through the provision of open sociable spaces and a nature walk along the river.


Support sustainable lifestyles

through homes that use little energy and water, and supporting activities like food growing and shared transport.

The development team

Anne and Peter Miller, have selected TOWN as their development partner and Mole Architects as the project architects. TOWN is a profit-with-purpose developer and Mole Architects are an esteemed and award-winning architectural practice based in Cambridge. Together, we worked on Marmalade Lane, Cambridge, a cohousing community of 42 homes, working in close partnership with its residents. It was the winner of the RTPI Silver Jubilee Cup for the Overall Project of the Year 2020; the RICS Social Impact Project of the Year 2020; a RIBA National Award winner 2019; Richard Feilden Award, Housing Design Awards 2019 and most recently a Civic Trust Special Award for Sustainability.

TOWN is a leading developer within the custom build and community-led housing sectors with a solid track record of working alongside future residents in the design and delivery of their homes. Our mission is to create good places for better lives. We are currently working with Angel Yard Cohousing Group on a development in Norwich and, as part of a larger regeneration project called Love Wolverton, in the Town Centre of Wolverton, Milton Keynes we are working with Still Green Cohousing Group.

Mole Architects is an award-winning architectural practice based in Cambridge. Each project is informed by the nature of the place and the specifics of the project. Mole are lucky to have worked with clients with ambition and a passion for architecture and their work reflects this, resulting in unique buildings that reflect something about the people they work with. There’s also a consistency about Mole’s designs: an interest in material, texture, and colour. A desire to make buildings that are surprising in their context but feel right and an ambition to make buildings that use less energy, and feel good to be in.

"Oundle is a delightful, historic town with a rich architectural heritage. Our intent, as a team, is to add to that delight with an architecture that is simultaneously respectful, considered, and contextual. More than that we aspire to create a thriving community, supporting sustainable lifestyles, contributing positively to the town’s future."
