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.

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.
