Welcome to St. Neots

Including Eynesbury, Eaton Ford and Eaton Socon

St Neots is the largest town in Cambridgeshire, and since 1113 when the Priory of St Neots came into being has been an important bridge-head over the River Great Ouse. It is this bridge, and the convergence of the main roads from Huntingdon, Kimbolton and Bedford, around, which the prosperity of the town of St Neots has developed.

St Neots today has thrown off the dismal overcoat of the 20th Century and in recent years transformed itself into a "town in a garden". St Neots is one of the five principal towns in the District of Huntingdonshire, the others being Huntingdon, St Ives and Ramsey site of the former Abbey and the Roman town of Godmanchester.

Realising that it has some of the best assets any town could wish for; the huge Riverside Park with the River Great Ouse running through it, the old industrial and commercial buildings of the 19th Century most of which have now been tastefully transformed into vibrant modern shops, offices or apartments to die for, an enormous Market Place that provides not only parking in the middle of town - now there's a rare novelty - but also still fulfils its role as a proper market place but best of all on a couple of occasions each year it can all be cleared for a fun fair or other special public event.

Replacing the Maps

Further to my earlier post regarding our use of Google Maps and Google's decision to charge us, and every one else who uses them, I have now replaced the maps on our five town websites with those supplied by Open Street Map. As it turns out I think they are better quality maps too.

Once the code settles down and I am convinced I don't have hidden gremlins in it I will roll the new maps to the remaining Hunts Web village and parish websites.

Google Maps

It seems like Google wants us to pay to be able to use their maps but that is not going to happen, they are wealthy enough as it is. So over this autumn we will be replacing the Google Maps on the Huntingdonshire websites with a new map service.

We are currently in the process of adding these new maps to our large, sister site, the British Towns Network and they are working very well indeed.

In the meantime, we apologise for any inconvenience.

UPDATE Monday 8th - The prototypes of the new maps are now functional on the St Ives Town Website.
