Old Stables and Willington Parish Church

While the parish church dates to the 15th century, the most ancient part of this interesting village is a harbour created by the Vikings after they navigated the Great Ouse. Two 16th century buildings are all that remain of the demolition of a manor house once owned by Sir John Gostwick, Cardinal Wolsey’s Master of Horse. One is a dovecot containing 1,500 nesting boxes. The second is Henry VIII’s stables. Both are now in the hands of the National Trust.
