Haslingfield is a village and civil parish in South Cambridgeshire. The village is about six miles south-west of Cambridge, between Harston, Barton and Barrington. The main streets in the village are called High Street and New Road which together form an approximate circle around the Manor House.

Haslingefeld appears in the Domesday book with a population of 400, but there is archaeological evidence of people living in the vicinity 3,000 years ago. An Anglo-Saxon cemetery was discovered in the 1870s on Cantelupe Road, but unfortunately not carefully excavated.

The name Haslingfield is thought to be derived as follows: -field is an Anglo-Saxon suffix meaning cleared land in site of woods, while Hasling probably derives from the Haeslingas, a local band of people that lived here.


The cache is not near the village sign. Do not go climbing all over the sign!

If anybody would like to expand this series please do. I would just ask that you let SmokeyPugs know first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
