Arrington Parish Council

Welcome to Arrington

Arrington is a small rural parish situated in south-west Cambridgeshire. The A1198 or Ermine Way, part of the ancient Ermine Street, is a major influence on the parish.  

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, we are close to Wimpole Hall and are steeped in history dating back to c.950AD.

We are a small community of about 180 households and are serviced by our local church, the public house and the village hall.  Our Parish Council look after some of our village facilities and keep the accounts in order.

Get Directions

The name Arrington is derived from the Earningas who were a group or tribe of people who lived in Armingford (the ancient district roughly covering Arrington, East Hatley, Steeple Morden, Royston, Melbourn, Whaddon and points between) in Anglo-Saxon times.


Community Speedwatch (CSW) is a locally driven initiative where active members of the community join together with the support of the Police to monitor vehicle speeds using speed detection devices. The scheme aims to support our efforts to reduce speeds through the village.

Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the Police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds.

Volunteers receive appropriate training, and are supported by Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) staff.

Arrington Community Speed Watch is currently looking for volunteers to help run regular monitoring sessions.  If you can spare a few hours per month, please contact our local coordinator Malcolm Barrett on 207522.

Wimpole Hall Infrastructure (Car Park) Project

Wimpole Hall have ben creating a 10 Year vision and master plan n which will ensure the best for Wimpole and improve the visitor offer and experience, easing the pressures on the heritage assets and

environment. After an exhaustive exploration of options, it has been concluded that the greatest

conservation benefit to the estate will be the removal of the existing car parking from the

parkland areas around the Stable Block and relocation of parking and the visitor welcome

outside of the Registered Park. The public are invited to an ‘open house’ at 11am on Saturday 25th February 2017 at the Wimpole Rectory Restaurant to seek your views and answer questions on the

Project.  Full details and agenda HERE.

Wimpole Hall - Multi Use Trail Project

Wimpole Hall in partnership with Sport England are planning to create a circular multi use trail, approximately 9km, (5.6 miles).  The trail will be designed for use all year round, will enable different user groups to enjoy the wider Estate and be accesible from the Arrington Gates.  The project is due to commence this year and a public drop-in session is being held on Wednesday 29th March between 3.30pm-6pm. Larger maps of the proposed route and plans will be on show, plus you will be able to speak to members of the property team and project leads.

More information on the Multi-Use trail can be found on the Wimpole website, www.nationaltrust.org.uk/wimpole and a links can be found here to a map of the proposed route and National Trust letter.
