Longstanton is a popular village approximately 6 miles (9.66 kilometres) north-west of Cambridge.
For most of its history the village was split into two parishes: Long Stanton All Saints and Long Stanton St. Michael and was not officially amalgamated into one village until 1953.
The village has recently seen a big influx of all styles of new build homes from major developers such as George Wimpey, Kier, Charles Church and Persimmon which has resulted in huge growth for the village.
Longstanton is an area of interest to many buyers from Cambridge because of the advantage of the guided busway which runs every 7 minutes into Cambridge and then onto Cambridge station and Addenbrooke's hospital. The village is also only 2.5 miles (4.02 kilometres) from the A14 and 5 miles (8.05 kilometres) from the M11.
There is a good community spirit within the village which holds various events including a local market and summer fayre. You can also find regular events and classes at the primary school or Northstowe Secondary School and regular sports events are held at the recreation ground and The Pavilion.
Facilities in Longstanton include a primary school, a village institute, doctors and dentist surgery, veterinary surgery, public house, village store with post office, fish and chip shop and a co-operative store. The village will benefit from a wider choice of facilities on offer from the neighbouring purpose built town of Northstowe that is currently in development.
Please note that Cambridge has a fine selection of independent and special schools, which have not been included. The information regarding schools, doctors and dentists contained in this infographic is based on information supplied by the GOV.UK website. You must seek clarification from the school itself to ensure that the area above is within the correct school catchment. Train line distances are straight line measurements.
