Billing is made up of two former villages before the 1970s known as Great Billing and Little Billing. After a 1980s housing development Bellinge and Standens Barn were formed. Billing is off the Wellingborough Road, east of Weston Favell and can also be accessed from the A45 and Great Billing Way. The oldest settlements in Billing are Church Lane in Little Billing and Station Road in Great Billing.
Bellinge has become notorious for it's deprived and crime ridden streets. Made to house the overspill of London in the mid 80s Bellinge became a hotspot for violent crime in the mid 90s and in 1994 had the worst crime rate in the whole of Northamptonshire. During 1996, the crime rate was five times the national average and the Deer's Leap pub on Billingmead Square was a 'no go area' day and night. Bellinge hit melting point in late 1996 when rioting between local drug dealers and police ensued, petrol bombs and missiles were thrown all across the place as eventually flats were demolished and the area became Fieldmill Square.
Standens Barn has gradually been built up throughout the late 80s and 90s and is accessable from Billing Brook Road.
