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.

Wintringham a place to work

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.

This week we're shining the spotlight on our very own St Neots Mayor!

Many of you will know Stephen Ferguson, who lives just over the road on Loves Farm.

We spoke to Stephen about what he loves most about St Neots and any top tips he may have for newbies moving in...

"As a fellow St Neots East resident, I can say without a doubt, you have made the right decision in moving here. St Neots is rightly regarded as “the jewel of River Great Ouse”.
If you haven’t already, I suggest you have a
weekend stroll along the riverbank from Riverside Park, to Pocket Park and back. Or maybe have a wander around beautiful Priory Park."
...

It's that time of week again, we're here with your Street Food Saturdays line up!

This Saturday will see @the_cooks_nest and @rotisseroll making their debut at Wintringham, with @churros_bar making their return for those with a sweet tooth!

@the_cooks_nest will be bringing a Taste of Greece to St Neots, with @rotisseroll offering delicious artisan rottisserie chicken and porchetta.

Don't miss out! Make sure you're at Wintringham between 5pm and 8pm this Saturday!

With the first two play parks being open nearly a month, we want to know which is your favourite?

Do you prefer to be King (or Queen!) of the Castle at Bret Park? Or is running up and down the ripples at Ripple Park more your thing?

This weekend we're putting the spotlight on some of the wonderful faces behind Wintringham St Neots.

Meet Tracy and Kate, the Headteacher and Office Manager at Wintringham Primary Academy.

It's the people and the community that make Wintringham the place it is today and the place it will be in the future.

Wintringham is being developed with community at the forefront, with the community being of utmost importance at this new development located within the bustling market town of St Neots.
...

Outside of a global pandemic, there is usually a clear divide between where we work and where we live. But for one @calahomes employee however, he has taken the decision to live where he works – and he couldn’t be happier about it.

David Wood, technical co-ordinator of CALA at Wintringham and technical manager of its North Home Counties region, was delighted to oversee the CALA at Wintringham development and become a member of Wintringham’s blossoming community.

I spy with my little eye, something beginning with W… Any guesses?

If you know anything about Wintringham Primary Academy, you'll know that W stands for woodland grove!

Here you can see the woodland grove located to the centre of the school, not only can the woodland grove be seen from inside classrooms but it can also be used as an outdoor teaching space!

Natural environment

A well designed and managed landscape in which people and wildlife can thrive together is essential to the successful creation of this new neighbourhood. We will create landscaped, green spaces for our residents to enjoy sports, recreation and leisure pursuits. We will also protect and enhance key ecological features and establish new habitats for a diverse range of plants and animals to flourish.

Get involved

Wintringham is an extension to St Neots and we want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to join us on this exciting journey to develop a new area that existing and future residents and visitors can enjoy. To be kept informed about the development and forthcoming community events, please register for updates.
