"ST. NEOT'S, vulgo NEEDS, (Huntingdonshire) 6 m. from Huntington, 41 cm. 56 mm, from London, so called from the monument of a saint of that name in it, which was burnt by the Danes, is a large well built T. having a handsome strong Ch. with a prodigious fine steeple; and a good stone bridge over the Ouse, by which coals are brought to it, and sold thro' the country. It has a ch. sc. for 25 poor children, and gives title of baron to the E. of Sandwich, the Ld. of the manor. Its Mt. is on Th. Fairs on Holy-Th. Aug. 1, Corpus Christi-day, and Dec. 6; and it is famous for a medicinal spring."
