Although this one-time village on the banks of the River Great Ouse is now a dormitory town for bustling Bedford and Milton Keynes, it oozes history. It was called "camestone" in the Domesday Book and was the scene of the crucial discovery of a perfectly preserved Anglo Saxon drinking horn, now held by the British Museum. The full story is told at a local Saxon Centre.
