It has a course of about 13 miles, rising near Lullington and joining the Ouse at Huntingdon. There is on the hill an ancient chapel dedicated to St. Anne, which commands inexpensive prospect. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Ely, value with Weston, £162, in the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Westminster. The church is dedicated to SS. Peter and Paul. The Wesleyan Methodists have a chapel here. A fair is held on the 21st June. Alconbury Lodge is the principal residence."
