History

Comberton is a village and civil parish in South Cambridgeshire 6 miles from Cambridge. Comberton has a population of about 2,300.

Archaeological finds, including a Neolithic polished stone axe (found to the south of the current village) and a Bronze Age barrow (to the north), suggest there has been a settlement here for thousands of years. A Roman villa was discovered in 1842. The village was mentioned in the Domesday Book as Cumbertone, and clearly dates to at least the 11th century. Some houses in the village date from the 14th century.
