Duxford is a picturesque village established around the churches of St Peter’s and St John’s, set in some of the finest South Cambridgeshire countryside. It has become an important and growing community with the advantage of an excellent range of local facilities. A primary school serves the area and a regular bus route runs to Saffron Walden and the University City of Cambridge. In addition, the nearby village of Sawston includes a highly regarded village college, banks, two supermarkets and recreational facilities. Renowned for the Imperial War Museum, Duxford has become a desirable locality for the commuter with the M11 junction and Whittlesford Parkway railway station both just over a mile away. The latter offers a convenient and regular service to London Liverpool Street. Royston is a short drive away and has a fast rail service to London Kings Cross.
