Village

 

This section is the least developed, as I have lots of information about the buildings etc. of the village, but do not yet have the system to display it on the website.

It does however have a current map, some old maps, a list of current and historic websites relevant to the village, a list of the known public houses, a little about nearby villages and places, and a village blog containing posts about the village.

I have taken the liberty of adding pages for some village groups that do not otherwise have a web presence, including the local history group, our community café (Chatters), Film Club, and our Book Club (a list of books read).

If any other group would like something about themselves, or useful to members, added here then I am happy to consider it (as long as it is not too time critical as this site is mostly about history, and only updated every few months). In particular if you would like to document your group’s history here in some way then I would be delighted to offer that service – please let us know.

Hopefully it will eventually contain many more items about:-

  • General History
  • Maps
  • Streets
  • Dwellings
  • Street Features (e.g. the War Memorial)
  • Events
  • Subjects

If you have information (or photographs etc.) that could be of interest please feel free to let me know.

  1. Hi Peter, Thanks for getting in touch. The parish church is St John the Baptist in Holywell, and they are now part of the Meridian Benefice. There is also the Baptist Church in Needingworth, and there used to be a Methodist congregation here too. You can find links to their websites on the Current Village Websites page.

    I have photographed, transcribed and recorded all the Parish Registers that I could find – see this page. This means that if you search for any of your relatives on this website (using eg the search boxes top right of most pages) you should find any Parish Register entries (PRs) we know about.

    I hope this helps, but if you would like to contact me either generally, or about any specific people in your family, I can see if I can help.
    Peter

  2. My name is Peter Moody and I believe my family was in Needingworth during the first half of the 19th century. I think I am OK about their key dates but I would like to know please the name of the church in Holywell where some of them might have been baptised, married or buried. Thank you.
