Located on the banks of the river Cam, the historic village of Hauxton retains a rural charm and is surrounded by open countryside. This area of South Cambridgeshire offers perfect opportunities for cycling, walking and exploring. Historic monuments, houses and museums mixed with popular pubs and friendly villages create the perfect countryside location.
It is believed there has been a mill on the present site at Hauxton since before Roman times, although it was in its heyday in the late 18th century when it also crushed rapeseed for oil. A new mill was built in 1851, after a fire, and ground corn until the mid 1970s when Turner and Son ceased trading. It’s the only example of a 19th Century watermill in Cambridgeshire.
There is a strong sense of community spirit in Hauxton Village and the peaceful life here naturally centres around the village hall, primary school and local church – St. Edmunds is one of the oldest in the county with many interesting Norman features. There are shops and amenities in Great Shelford (approx. 3 miles) and further afield Cambridge offers a host of entertainment, leisure and shopping options.
