Daventry is traditionally a rural town with a small population, having around 4000 residents in 1950. Development came about from 1955 when British Timken, the tapered roller bearing company, built a large factory in the town. Combined with being designated as an 'overspill' to settle people and industry from Birmingham in 1966 as part of an understanding with Birmingham City Council, the town proceeded to grow. There are a number housing estates, consisting of Drayton, Middlemore Farm, Long Farm, Ashby Fields, Royal Oak, Timken, Stefen Hill, The Grange, The Southbrook and the Headlands. Irrespective of such development, it did not reach the target population of 36000 by 1981, and the population of the town was recorded as 25026 in the 2011 Census.
