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.
