From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Longstanton is a village and civil parish in South Cambridgeshire, England, 6 miles (9.7 km) north-west of Cambridge city centre. Longstanton occupies 2,775 acres (1,123 ha). Longstanton was created in 1953 from the two parishes of Long Stanton All Saints and Long Stanton St. Michael. Although the village is called Longstanton, an alternative form Long Stanton can still be found in use today particularly when referring to the separate pre-1953 parishes or to the current ecclesiastical parish.
The first known reference to the village, dating back to 1070 AD, calls the village “Stantonia” and describes it as “an enclosed settlement of stoney ground.” By the time of the Domesday Book “Stantone” was one of the most populous villages in the area, with 67 peasant tenants being recorded.
