Horseheath, Cambridgeshire

Horseheath is a hamlet in Cambridgeshire, England, situated a few miles south-east of Cambridge, between Linton and Haverhill, on the A1307 road. Horseheath was known to the Romans, and it had for a while a fine house in a great park, but both are now gone. Now it has a few old houses, to keep company with its 600 year old church containing Norman fragments.
