The market town of Huntingdon, with its population of over 20,000 is centrally situated in Cambridgeshire. It stands proudly on the north bank of the River Great Ouse, at the junction of the A1 and A14, often referred to as the Crossroads of Eastern England. The centre of Huntingdon is now mainly traffic-free, making it a pleasant environment for the pedestrian to wander through, admiring some of the 150 properties listed as being of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.Huntingdon's most famous son, Oliver Cromwell, 'Lord Protector of the Commonwealth', from 1653 until his death in 1658, was born in Huntingdon and William Cowper, the famous poet, lived here from 1765 to 1767. The meandering River Great Ouse, one of the country's longest navigable rivers, attracts many visitors to the town. Riverside Park, with its many beautiful trees, provides picturesque scenery for residents and visitors alike. There is an attractive riverside terrace, complete with seating and mooring facilities, from where there are impressive views of Westside Common, the former mill and the fine old bridge, which was built of stone in around 1332. It has six arches and is considered to be one of the finest medieval bridges still left in England today.
