Further Information and Other Local Ideas

Great Staughton, like many English villages, has undergone significant changes since the war, particularly in the last two decades with new residential developments leading to a notable rise in population. Despite this, it has maintained its rural essence. The church remains a central part of community life, and there is a local village school. The village is a hub for a variety of active clubs and societies. These include a thriving drama company, a social club, indoor bowls, and a horticultural society, with its annual August show being a major event in the village's social calendar. Sports are also a key feature, with a tennis club, and football and cricket matches regularly held on the excellent village green. A recent indicator of the village's vibrancy is the establishment of about 50 miles of new rights of way, showcasing the history, flora, and fauna of the area. This development is celebrated in the book ‘Walks around Great Staughton’, authored by three local residents.
