Welcome to Hemingford Abbots. There are 271 dwellings in our village and about 635 people. It is a lively, friendly, modern community in a historic setting.

Hemingford Abbots is situated along the southern bank of the River Great Ouse in Cambridgeshire. The town of Huntingdon is 3 miles to the west and St Ives is about the same distance to the east. The nationally important A14 trunk road crosses the parish to the south of the village and provides links with Cambridge, Huntingdon, the M11, A1, M1 and the east coast ports.

Hemingford Abbots is well-known as a very picturesque village. Many visitors come to enjoy the river and the peaceful walks in the meadows. Much of the village is in the ‘Conservation Area’; here there are many thatched 16th and 17th century cottages and barns, and also the architecturally important buildings such as the Manor House, Old Rectory and Hemingford Park. The fine spire of the Grade I listed Church of St Margaret of Antioch is a landmark for miles around the Ouse valley.

The cache is a short walk from the village sign so please do not go climbing all over it!

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..
