A thriving community

Be part of Wintringham

Wintringham will be a thriving community, supported by key facilities, services and amenities, set in dynamic and attractive spaces. Critically, the new community will be supported by public transport, safe links to the station and cyclepath/footway connections to get around the place and connect to neighbouring Loves Farm and St Neots.

Wintringham has been designed with spaces and places where people can meet up and play an active role in their new community.

A place to work

Wintringham will cultivate and support a thriving business community. The employment area will include a landscaped business park, small-scale employment around the district and local centre targeted at innovative and creative industries, and lighter clean industrial units to the south of the site, with good access to the regional transport network.

Archaeology

Early evidence suggests that Wintringham has been home to a variety of different people throughout the ages - dating back as far as the Neolithic period (c.4000 – 2200 BC). Our archaeologists will be investigating and documenting the site to help us better understand how our ancestors lived and worked the land.

With the re-opening of schools on the horizon, it will be great to see pupils returning to Wintringham Primary Academy.

Designed by architects DRMM, this three-form entry school was designed inspired by forest school principles.

Whether you're recently moved into Wintringham, you're working on site or you live in the local area and regularly pass by, you'll have noticed a lot of progress over the past weeks and months.

We recently worked with our local partners @macroartltd, who are based in St Neots, to bring forward an extensive run of hoarding here at Wintringham.

A stellar joint effort between Macro Art and our chosen creative agency, Hello Hackenbacker, has transformed the Nuffield Road entrance to the development and expertly showcases how the Wintringham story and vision can be impactfully told through the installation of hoarding.

Here at Wintringham, we have been working with @oxfordarchaeology to carry out excavations, in order to understand and record the archaeological and historical context of the site before any development work takes place.

Early excavations have revealed evidence of several later Iron Age (c. 400-100 BC) roundhouses. The Iron Age families who lived on the site over 2,500 years ago were farmers who grew cereal crops and kept cows, sheep and pigs.

Over the next 12 to 18 months, we will be shedding even more light on what's been found at Wintringham, so watch this space!
