Our Parish

The Parish of The Stukeleys lies to the north-west of the historic market town of Huntingdon and principally comprises the villages of Great and Little Stukeley. It also includes Huntingdon Racecourse and the former Alconbury Airfield.

The main East Coast railway line to London runs through the Parish as does the A14 Trunk Road, giving the Stukeleys exceptional transport links. The villages of Great and Little Stukeley lie astride Ermine Street, the Old Roman Road.

To the immediate north and east of the two villages, and forming the northern boundary of the Parish, lies the former World War Two airfield of Alconbury.   Today this site is jointly occupied by a range of commercial storage activities and the United States Air Force and is the location of Alconbury Weald, now the subject of major redevelopment for 5,000 homes and 8,000 jobs.

Great Stukeley is a hill-top village which originally comprised of the three 'ends', Church End, Owl End and Green End, grouped around the parkland of Stukeley Hall, a late Georgian country house. There is a fine medieval church, St Bartholomew’s, a Village Hall and the Recreation Ground.  Great Stukeley also has a public house, the Three Horseshoes, and The Stukeleys Country Hotel.

Little Stukeley lies in a shallow valley leading down from the higher ground into the wide valley of the Alconbury Brook. There are a number of interesting cottages around the church of St Martin that form a Conservation Area. The large Georgian Old Rectory was the scene of a famous murder in the nineteenth century.

What the council can do for you

Community Money

This is money paid by developers to the local planning authority to support local infrastructure that helps communities manage the changes brought about by developments. We want your input on how this money can be best spent and how we can best serve the community.

Maintenance

At the Parish Council we strive to ensure our local community is kept clean and tidy with maintenance issues dealt with in a timely manner. This includes street lighting to hedge trimming. Get in touch if you feel an area of your Parish needs attention.

Infrastructure

With all the on-going development in the area, the infrastructure of the Parish is changing significantly. We always try to make decisions which are best for the community, but we also need the community to be vocal about any concerns they have, so please feel free to get in touch.

Transparency

Stukeley Parish Council is a Parish with a fully transparency code compliant website in accordance with the government guidelines. We look to provide democratic, local leadership that is accountable, open and transparent in which we are open about any administrative and financial documents.
