Welcome

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.

Speed Watch

Can you spare a couple of hours once a month to help run speed watch sessions in the village ?

We urgently need volunteers to help run these operations to monitor speeds through Arrington and support our case for a reduced speed limit between Wraggs Farm and the Wimpole turn at the North end of the village.

Please contact Joanne Smith on 01223-208358
