Spaldwick is a village of charming old houses beside the Ellington brook which is crossed by a 15th century bridge. On the green is a fragment of a medieval cross. The George Inn is notable for its wall paintings dating from the 17th century. Manor Farm, Beech House and Ivy House are of 17th century dating. The Limes is Georgian. There are ancient entrenchments at Danefield.

The splendid church has a Decorated tower and spire and a fine Norman north doorway. The Early English font, 16th century screen, old parish  chest and three sundials should be noticed.

Spaldwick is one of the parishes of the District of Huntingdonshire, whose administrative centre is Huntingdon, the other principle towns being St Ives home of the Chapel on the Bridge, St Neots the largest town in the County of Cambridgeshire, the Roman town of Godmanchester and Ramsey site of the former Abbey.

One in and one out

I have added in the new store for Mountain Warehouse in St Ives and they are very welcome in the town too filling the space left vacant by the sad loss of New Look after many years.

I'll put up a picture of Mountain Warehouse's new store once they have the redecoration complete and it's a nice enough day for me to venture out to do it.
