Duxford is a village in Cambridgeshire, England, about south of Cambridge. It is part of the Hundred Parishes area.HistoryThe village formed on the banks of the River Cam, a little below its emergence from the hills of north Essex. One of the more populous settlements in its hundred it was split into two ecclesiastical parishes in medieval times until they were united in 1874.Originally known as Duxworth and listed as Dukeswrthe in the 10th century, and Dochesuuorde in the Domesday Book the village's name comes from "Worth (enclosure) of a man called Duc".ChurchesFrom medieval times the village was unusual in possessing two parish churches, each with a separate incumbent - these were St John's Church and St Peter's Church, only the latter of which still functions as a church. To the north of the village close to the Royston to Newmarket road lies Duxford Chapel, a 14th-century chantry chapel that was probably part of the Hospital of St John.A Congregational chapel was built in the late 18th century and licensed in 1794, and at its peak in 1850 had a weekly congregation of 350. The chapel joined with other Congregational churches in uniting with the Presbyterian Church of England in 1972, and has been known as Duxford United Reformed Church since then.Use our United Kingdom day trip tool to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Duxford.
