Interesting visitors to our villageLast Friday (11th March) we had a couple of unusual visitors to Bar Hill. I was pleased to see them and meet them as back in the late 60's, before I lived in Bar Hill, I used to ride with my girl friend from Dry Drayton across to Bar Hill, tie the horses outside Cambridge Consultants and partake of the free coffee

Bar Hill Early History updateLast Friday, 22nd January 2016, We had a visit from Brian Falk one of the team that was instrumental in the original creation of Bar Hill.
Brian has passed to us a number of interesting documents and photos from the early days and I will make them available as soon as I can. This may take a little time as I need to digitise a lot of slides.
Brian has sent us a document that shows the growth of the village from the original 2,500 people to where we are today (4,500). Click here to view it.
I have copied the first set of 10 original drawings that were used to support the original planning proposal. Click here to view them.
