Welcome to Huntingdon

The birth place of Oliver Cromwell

Huntingdon is an important bridge-head where the A1, the Great North Road, crosses the River Great Ouse near to Hinchingbrooke House once home to both the Cromwell's and then the Montagu's, The Earls of Sandwich, where in 1660 Samuel Pepys was secretary to Edward Montagu, so Huntingdon was no stranger to politics when John Major became the youngest Prime Minister of the 20th Century.

Huntingdon is one of the five principal towns in the District of Huntingdonshire, the others being St Ives, St Neots (the largest town in the County of Cambridgeshire), Ramsey site of the former Abbey and the Roman town of Godmanchester located just across the River Great Ouse from Huntingdon. We are also constructing Huntingdonshire Parish website for the village of Brampton.
