Meldreth is a village and civil parish in South Cambridgeshire, England, located around 10 miles (16 km) south-west of Cambridge. At the 2011 Census, the population of the parish was 1,783.
A large Bronze Age hoard was found near Meldreth railway station in the nineteenth century that is now in the collections of the British Museum. The village of Meldreth grew in Saxon times, and the parish is home to Mettle Hill (formerly known as Motlowehyll) that was probably the original meeting place of Armingford Hundred.
Listed as Melrede in the Domesday Book of 1086, the village’s name means “mill stream”, named after the stream that rises at Melbourn Bury and flows north into the River Rhee.
