Village Information

Stapleford is a popular village due to its proximity to Shelford train station and the south side of Cambridge. The village is home to the Stapleford Granary, a study centre for the arts and music where it hosts concerts, lectures and events which are open to all and offers space for educational activities and courses.  On the road to Haverhill is Middlefield, a house formerly known as Mount Blow which was used as a nursing home for injured soldiers during the first world war.

There is a primary school in the village with the local secondary school, Sawston Village College, just over 1.5 miles (2.41 kilometres) away.


There are two public houses in the village, The Rose and The Three Horseshoes. The latter specializes in a long whiskey and gin menu, as well as fine foods.

Stapleford is also home to St. Andrews church, a primary school, garages and allotments. There is one pub, The Three Horseshoes, which was recently refurbished and serves a good range of cask ales with a food menu leaning towards Cypriot & Greek dishes. There is a youth football club, a cricket team and several farms and other businesses.
