A thriving community

Be part of Wintringham

Wintringham is a thriving community, supported by key facilities, services and amenities, set in dynamic and attractive spaces. Critically, the new community is supported by public transport, safe links to the station and cyclepath/footway connections to get around the place and connect to neighbouring Loves Farm and St Neots.

Wintringham has been designed with spaces and places where people can meet up and play an active role in their new community.

Wintringham a place to work

A place to work

Wintringham will cultivate and support a thriving business community. The employment area will include a landscaped business park, small-scale employment around the district and local centre targeted at innovative and creative industries, and lighter clean industrial units to the south of the site, with good access to the regional transport network.

Archaeology

Early evidence suggests that Wintringham has been home to a variety of different people throughout the ages - dating back as far as the Neolithic period (c.4000 – 2200 BC). Our archaeologists will be investigating and documenting the site to help us better understand how our ancestors lived and worked the land.

We will soon be carrying out the next excavations to understand and record the archaeological and historical context of the site before the next phase of new homes are built. So far, excavations have revealed evidence of several Iron Age roundhouses. The Iron Age families who lived on the site over 2,500 years ago were farmers who grew cereal crops and kept cows, sheep and pigs.

Three Fishes Pond sits at the entrance to Wintringham and is surrounded by landscaped public space creating a striking landmark for residents and visitors. The pond is formed from an existing drainage pond and is home to a diverse range of wetland wildlife and natural habitats.

The pond takes its name from the legend of Saint Neot – a ninth century monk who, according to legend, had a holy well that always contained three fish. Neot was granted divine permission to take one fish from the well daily, with an assurance that the total number of fish would never diminish.

Why not take a walk along the leisure routes and discover some more interesting facts about Wintringham?

Bret Pond at Wintringham makes for a lovely walk when exploring the outdoors and the view overlooking the pond is enjoyed by residents of @calahomes

Bret Pond at Wintringham is named after the Bret (or Brito) family who were prominent land owners for several hundred years in the area around Wintringham from as far back as 1086. Multiple generations of the family farmed the fields near to Wintringham and they built their own chapel in the area. The Bret family even gifted the Priory of St. Neots two “hides” and one “virgate” of land - historical terms associated with large acreages of land.
