Sawston, Cambridgeshire. Among Sawstons claims to fame is the first village college built in 1930. The colleges were the idea of Mr Henry Morris and were intended to be regional centres serving a wide range of educational, social and cultural needs.
St Mary's Church is partly Norman and contains several interesting brasses.
Sawston Hall is the only Elizabethan mansion in the country to be built of chinch, the hard chalk which underlies the whole of the East Anglian outcrop at various places along its western edge. It was the material used in the Lady Chapel at Ely as well as in many of the cottages and farm-buildings along the Cambridgeshire and Norfolk borders. The Hall was probably built between 1557 and 1584. Queen Mary had spent a night in the original house in 1553 before it was burnt by a mob. The Hall which has been occupied by the same family, the Huddlestones, for the past 400 years. is open to the public at various times during the year.
