Sawston is a large village in Cambridgeshire situated on the River Cam 7 miles (11 km) south of Cambridge


History Although the current village of Sawston has only existed as anything more than a hamlet for 400 to 600 years, there is evidence for a settlement in the vicinity dating back to the early Bronze Age almost 5000 years ago. Sawston Hall is a Grade I listed Tudor manor house dating from the 16th century. Sawston has seen substantial development since the end of the Second World War and, more recently, a number of large housing estates have been constructed, most notably to the north-west and south of the village. This development has led to the area of Sawston spreading into the small nearby village of Pampisford.
