LITTLE STUKELEY: Geographical and Historical information from the year 1932.

[Description(s) transcribed by Martin Edwards and later edited by Colin Hinson ©2010]
[from The Victoria County History series - 1932]

"LITTLE STUKELEY, the parish of Little Stukeley lies near the centre of the old county, some three miles north of Huntingdon Town centre. It is a narrow strip of land, bounded mainly by the parishes of Great Stukeley and Alconbury. The land is highest in the north; towards the south, near Alconbury Brook, the low-lying pasture is liable to flood. The soil is stiff clay and part gravel; the sub-soil is clay.

The village formerly lay at the crossing of Ermine Street by the road to Abbots Ripton, but Alconbury Aerodrome now has caused this latter road to be rerouted. The more important part of the village, including the church, is on the north side of Ermine Street along the old Abbots Ripton road, where there are many picturesque timber-framed thatched or tiled houses and cottages. On the south side of Ermine Street the houses are more modern and more scattered.

The civil parish was abolished in 1935 to help create "The Stukeleys" civil parish."
