[Transcribed and edited information from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland - 1868]

"ST. NEOT'S, a parish and small town in the hundred of Toseland, county Hunts, 8 miles south-west of Huntingdon, and 51 from London by the Great Northern railway, on which it is a station. It is situated on the east bank of the river Ouse, over which is a stone bridge of one central arch, with two smaller ones, over the stream, and continued by six other arches, forming a causeway over the marshy lands adjoining. It derives its name from an ancient Benedictine monastery situated on the opposite bank of the river, at Eynesbury, originally founded in 974 by Earl Alric and his wife Ethelfleda, and dedicated to St. Neot, whose relics are said to have been stolen from Neotstock, in Cornwall, and conveyed hither." (There is more of this description).
