Hometown (Corby) is an audio story that developed from our collaborative HOMETOWN project. 

Hometown Corby is an audio story curated and written by Ryan Leder in collaboration with James Jip, Elspeth Robb and James Robb as part of the HOMETOWN CORBY project, supported by the National Heritage Lottery Fund. It tells the story of one family and their connection to Corby throughout the history of the town – beginning with the Scottish Migration, through the building of the Steelworks, and even covering Corby’s New Town designation.

The story was edited together from hours of interviews facilitated in August of 2021.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on our Hometown audio pieces.  You can send these to Ryan at
