    History and an exciting future

    Pretty lanes lined with flint walls lead you around this village, dating as far back as the Bronze Age, and take you past sights such as the Grade I listed 16th Century manor house, Sawston Hall and the Grade II listed 18th Century Brooklands building. In fact, there are 71 listed buildings in the village.

    When it comes to outdoor spaces there are parks, children’s play areas, outdoor sports areas, allotments and Sawston’s best kept secret; a walled garden with two acres of trees and flowers known as Mary Challis Garden.

    Just a stroll away

    The impressive range of amenities in the village – such as grocery stores, cafés, pubs, takeaways, hairdressers, building societies, a library, a medical centre and a pharmacy – has led to it being categorised as a rural centre.

    Sawston’s trade park is being redeveloped, creating 1400 new jobs and bringing further investment to the village – and permission has been granted for a new 3000-capacity Cambridge City Football Club stadium which will add to the already impressive sports facilities for the community.
