About the Village

Like many English villages, Great Staughton has seen many changes since the war, none more so than in the past twenty years, when a new residential development brought a substantial increase in the village’s population. It still retains its rural character; the church plays an important role in the community and we have a village school.

Staughton also plays host to a wide variety of flourishing clubs and societies, including a successful drama company, a social club, indoor bowls, a horticultural society, whose annual show in August is one of the high points of the village calendar. Sports are well represented, with a tennis club, and football and cricket a feature of the superb green.

Another recent testimony to the health of the village was the creation of some 50 miles of entirely new rights of way which explore the history, flora and fauna of the surrounding region. A book ‘Walks around Great Staughton’ written by three local residents, celebrates the opening of the new paths.

The village has two pubs, the Tavern on the Green and the White Hart, both of which serve meals.
