All households within the 30 mph zone have received new speed limit stickers for their wheelie bins. It would be appreciated if all residents would over-sticker or replace the old 40 mph stickers. If you require 30mph stickers, please click here.
Arrington village is located on the A1198 in South Cambridgeshire.
The village is 6 miles north of Royston and 9 miles south-west of the University town of Cambridge.
In 2005 a working party created the Village Plan, laying out goals and objectives to improve the village.
This plan is now being reviewed with the help of a new working party and they will shortly be consulting residents on the future priorities.
With the festive season upon us and lots of events planned throughout the village, keep your eye on the website to help you plan your own festivities.
See the Parish plan from 2005 here
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.
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.
