Histon & Impington

Histon and Impington are villages situated just north of Cambridge with the main bulk of the settlements being separated from the city by the A14 road. Over the years the two villages have grown and entwined together to such an extent that many villagers today do not know where one ends and the other begins

History Some of the track ways that pass though these villages are believed to be prehistoric. Flint tools have been dug up in and around the area and aerial photographs show evidence of ancient settlements including Iron Age and Roman.  Pieces of Roman pottery have been found in the area. Possibly the oldest surviving area of interest is Gun’s Lane, which is named after a family who once lived in the lane. Today this is just a bridleway but it was for centuries the Cambridge to Ely causeway, which was the main road into the Fens and the Isle of Ely.
