Welcome to the unofficial web site for Foxton in Cambridgeshire in the UK


This site is, since the Parish Council is now charging everybody for an official website, focused on the history and genealogy of the village.

There are still some bits left that the official site can't or won't deal with such as the village hall documentation.

If you want to contact the parish council or notify some event use clerk@foxtonparishcouncil.gov.uk

Foxton is a small village 7 miles south of Cambridge with about 1200 adults and 250 children,  and for the moment around 480 houses (about 20 of which change hands each year).

It has a main line station to Cambridge or to Stevenage and London Kings Cross.

South Cambs District Council supply an analysis of the village which you can find here.

 Multimap or StreetMap location maps

If you are geographically inclined, we are approximately here: TL410482 or

541000m 248200m or Lat: 52:06:54N (52.115) Lon: 0:03:30E (0.0584) i.e. just east of the Greenwich Meridian!

 

There are buttons on the left which cascade into different categories, but you need to scroll down to see them all. There are links to external websites which are all out of our control, follow those links at your own risk. The main source of written news in the village is the 'Laurentian' which is delivered monthly to subscribing houses.

This site was initially made available by the Parish Council, but is maintained by volunteers without reference to them. Since then the Parish Council at enormous expense has created its own website which is essentially a directory (without web site links) of village organisations. It does link through to SCDC planning for current applications in Foxton which is handy if you can't find SCDC planning and select Foxton. It does have a calendar if you only want to know about PC meetings. It intends to have a mapping feature in case you get lost in the village (?). It does not have a forum where you could offer comment on  local issues. Sad really.

Any inaccuracies, mistakes or views expressed are solely due to the webmaster operating, to paraphrase our last prime minister, 'in the sincere belief of righteousness and therefore absolved of responsibility'.  We will however attempt to correct any mistakes that people tell us about.
