West Hunsbury is a large housing estate in the south of the town of Northampton, 2 miles from the town centre, and adjacent to junction 15A on the M1. It is part of the Hunsbury residential area, which also constitutes East Hunsbury east of Towcester Road.
There is a modern church, St Benedicts, Church of England, and shops including a small supermarket, post office, pharmacy, dentist, barbers and a health centre. In the car park of Hunsbury Hill Country Park there is now a small café called "The Drover's Return" named after the ancient Drover's Pathway which leads through the park.
The area shares many facilities with East Hunsbury especially at the junction of the old Towcester road and Mereway ring road including a 24hr Tesco 'Extra' supermarket, petrol station, Subway restaurant, a licensed Indian restaurant, and dry cleaners. There is also the Danes Camp Leisure centre and swimming pool next door.
