Melbourn is a large village in the far south west of Cambridgeshire 10 miles from Cambridge along the A10, north of Royston

History The parish has a long history of occupation stemming from the presence of springs at Melbourn Bury and the several ancient trackways that cross the parish; the Icknield Way runs to the south of the parish and Ashwell Street and the Roman Cambridge-Royston road are also believed to follow prehistoric trackways. Pottery and burial finds show evidence of Bronze Age residents and a Roman settlement has been found at the north-east edge of the village. Excavations in the 1950s discovered 28 graves from a 7th century Christian burial site close to Ashwell Street.
