Chettisham, Cambridgeshire

Chettisham a very small village in East Cambridgeshire between Ely and Littleport. The main claim to fame is the level crossing along the A10, the few houses in the layby and the old signal box where there was once a Chettisham railway station on the line between Ely and March. There are some pictures and a description of the church at the Cambridgeshire Churches website.
