Over is a popular village which lies approximately 10 miles (16.09 kilometres) north-west of university city of Cambridge. With the expansion of the A14 due to complete in the summer of 2020, the expectation is that residents will see better flowing traffic to the city and also benefit from the use of the additional local byroads.
Stops for the guided bus are located in Longstanton and approximately one mile away in neighbouring Swavesey, parallel to the busway is a cycle path which is also popular for runners and walkers.
The village appeals for many reasons such as its community spirit, with the Over carnival being the pinnacle to a busy social calendar. The community centre, located next to a sports field and children’s play area, holds many events such as weddings, birthdays and sporting events.
Farmers markets are held on the village green and is the perfect place to watch a cricket match, walk the dog or play football.
There are two preschools, a successful primary school and is in catchment for Swavesey Village College, which was rated in 2020 as outstanding by Ofsted. Along the High Street is a convenience store and post office, with a butcher, bakers, farm shop and Co-operative located in the neighbouring village of Willingham.
Wonderful walks can be enjoyed in the outlining countryside including the orchards, the fen or along chain road to the river Ouse.
