Hardwick :: TL3759

Hardwick is a village with a large housing estate located about 6 miles west of Cambridge. The village lies immediately south of the A428 road between Cambridge and St Neots.
The first recorded mention is in 991 AD and an entry in the Domesday Book of 1086. Hardwick used to consist of just a few houses and farmland around St Mary's Church, on what is now the southern edge of the village. It has expanded greatly since the 1960s, mainly due to an estate of hundreds of houses built on the orchard land to the north of the original hamlet.
The Blue Lion, the only pub in the village, lies on Main Street. The Sports and Social Club is based next to the football and cricket pitches in the centre of the village.
The village shop and post office are also on Cambridge Road.
