Glaedtuninga (x cent.); Glatune (xi cent.); Glattun, Glatton (xii cent.).

Glatton covers an area of 2,176 acres of clay land. It is mostly laid down for pasture, but there is a certain amount of arable land which produces wheat, barley and peas. The land is undulating; it rises from the Holme Brook in the east, where it is about 40ft. above the Ordnance datum, to a ridge of low hills rising to about 145 ft. From this low ridge the land falls to another brook to the south, where the land is about 50 ft. above Ordnance datum, from which it rises again to about 220 ft. on the western boundary.

The village and parish of Glatton in Huntingdonshire.

Glatton is one of the parishes of the District of Huntingdonshire, whose administrative centre is Huntingdon, the other principle towns being St Ives home of the Chapel on the Bridge, St Neots the largest town in the County of Cambridgeshire, the Roman town of Godmanchester and Ramsey site of the former Abbey.

Replacing the Maps

Further to my earlier post regarding our use of Google Maps and Google's decision to charge us, and every one else who uses them, I have now replaced the maps on our five town websites with those supplied by Open Street Map. As it turns out I think they are better quality maps too.

Once the code settles down and I am convinced I don't have hidden gremlins in it I will roll the new maps to the remaining Hunts Web village and parish websites.
