Corby is a town and borough in the county of Northamptonshire, England.
It is located 23 miles (37 km) north-east of the county town, Northampton. At the 2011 Census the town had a population of 54,927 and the borough had a population of 61,255. Figures released in March 2010 revealed that Corby has the fastest growing population in both Northamptonshire and the total of England. The borough of Corby borders onto the borough of Kettering, the district of East Northamptonshire, the district of Harborough and the unitary authority county of Rutland. The town was at one times known locally as “Little Scotland” due to the large number of Scottish migrant workers who came to Corby for its steelworks. Recently, Corby has undergone a large regeneration process taking into account the creation of Corby railway station and Corby International Pool in 2009 and the Corby Cube building creation in 2010. This is house to Corby Borough Council offices and afterward houses a 450-seat theatre, a public library and other community amenities.
