Scarecrows from the festival

Haslingfield is a village and civil parish in the South Cambridgeshire district of Cambridgeshire, England. The village is about six miles south-west of Cambridge, between Harston, Barton and Barrington. The population in the 2001 census was 1550 living in 621 households. The main streets in the village are called High Street and New Road which together form an approximate circle around the Manor House.

[edit] History

Haslingefeld appears in the Domesday book with a population of 400, but there is archaeological evidence of people living in the vicinity 3000 years ago. An Anglo-Saxon cemetery was discovered in the 1870's on Canteloupe road, but unfortunately not carefully excavated.

The name Haslingfield is thought to be derived as follows: -field is an Anglo-Saxon suffix meaning cleared land in site of woods, while Hasling probably derives from the Haeslingas a local band of people that lived here.

The church was consecrated in 1352, but the present chancel walls date from the 12th century. On White Hill behind the village there used to be a small chapel but all trace has since disappeared. The Tudor manor house was built by Sir Thomas Wendy, lord of the manor at the time, and used to be a very large house; today only one wing of the house remains, although it has been recently renovated and extended by the present owners.

The village sign shows Queen Elizabeth I who stayed one night at the Manor in the year 1564. During her stay she is supposed to have lost a ring and although this has never been found a number of ring hunts have been held in recent times.

The economy of the community has been based on farming for most of its existence. There was a short period of mining for coprolite, used to make fertilizer in the late 19th century. The Earl De La Warr sold his estates in Haslingfield to John Chivers who planted fruit for his jam-making factory in Histon.


Haslingfield and District Archers was set up in 2005 in the village.
