Little Wilbraham

lw

Little Wilbraham is a village approximately 1 mile west of Great Wilbraham.  The village name is derived from the name of a Saxon princess, Wilbur.   Both the villages of Little Wilbraham and Great Wilbraham were linked with the Knights Templars, growing food for the hospice at Denny Abbey.

Six Mile Bottom

Six Mile Bottom existed in name before it developed as a settlement, deriving this name from its distance from the Newmarket Racecourse, and the fact that it lies in a valley bottom.   There has always been a connection with hunting and shooting in the area for many hundreds of years, including royal patronage.
