This market town sits happily
on the banks of the Great Ouse and is typical of
Cambridgeshire. It started life as a priory
dedicated to St. Ivo in the 11th century
but gradually spread out.
Oliver Cromwell owned a farm nearby and there’s a statue of him in the market place.
But the town’s real claim to fame is its early 15th century six-arched bridge over the river. At its centre is a chapel, which is one of only four of its kind to have survived in Britain.
