I was looking up my family name on the net and found out about this wonderful village. I was wondering if there is anyway I can get a copy of that book that you sell about the history of Burwell. I'm an MP in the Army and am stationed in Kosovo right now. I've been all over Europe, except the UK. Hopefully someday soon I'll be able to visit. Your site is awesome! Keep the info comin'!

I did a Google search on my family name and the first entry was this site. It would be most interesting to visit this part of England some day. My past visits have been limited to London and Berkshire. Incidentally, I am a U.S. citizen and reside in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area (Minneapolis/St. Paul) in Minnesota. My father's side of the family has resided in the U.S. for generations. I'm not sure what part of England my paternal ancestors came from. It appears to be a rather common name in the UK. I even took notice of a toponym called the Burwell Copse near the village of Wokingham in Berkshire.

Just dicovered your web-site! My interest being that I lived in Burwell for approx;1 year during WW2. My late mother was housekeeper at the Vicarage. Can anybody recall the name of the Canon in residence then? I recall the vicarage very well and a summer garden party there. I attanded the old 2 room school briefly, and the excitement of waving to the military conveys coming thro' the village. These plus many more memories, albiet war-time, are days I fondly recall of Burwell.

My daughter and her husband were stationed in England from 1982-85. The lived in Burwell for about 1 year before moving to Mildenhall Air Force Base. They lived in a section of the big house just behind the church and cemetary. I visited there for a month and fell in love with your beautiful little villiage. I think of it often and long to go back.

Hi, in the mid 80's in lived in Newmarket, but my best friend lived in Burwell (Gail Rogerson) so I spent many a day in Burwell and loved it. I am now trying to track down a lad I worked with in Newmarket, who went to work (factory) and lived in Burwell. I and a friend Nic are coming to Newmarket in August and would love to meet up with him if he is still in the Burwell area. Any info please e-mail me. Thanks.

I have just registered my interest in Broadband for Burwell at the BTOpen website, which makes me voter 207 towards our trigger number of 500. It took a minute to do, I simply typed in my name, address, BT phone number and an email address so I can be informed when enough people have voted, and again to indicate a date when the telephone exchange is to be upgraded.

Since Bob's post in the Forum in Nov 2003, an additional 35 people have voted, not bad for a couple of months. It only takes 500 villagers to show an interest and we will automatically be upgraded to Broadband, making the Internet faster, more accessible, and freeing the home telephone line for incoming calls.

I would encourage Burwellians to press this issue forward: have a word with your family members, friends and neighbours! Let's vote for Burwell!

Researching family history. The Palmers of Burwell, who
left for Rawtenstall, Lancashire in the late 19th century. Are there any Palmers still in Burwell who are related to this family? Maria Da Silva and Stephen Palmer were my great great great grandparents.

I lived in Burwell in the late 1990 and early 1991 months. We lived on High street in a lovely home owned by Peter and John. My daughter, Aimee, went to school held in the old church at the end of town. I believe Mrs. Crouch was the headmistress of the school. We returned to the California with such fond memories of England, its people and of our home in Burwell. Hope to return someday.

Here I am after midnight going through your website, reminiscing about the time when I was a young wife of a USAF member. We lived on Granchester Rise in a small apt in 1973 until we moved to Lakenheath air base. I worked for a few months at a paper mill in Burwell, the name of which escapes me. I was still a Dutch citizen and was able to work on the local economy; worked with some friendly folks there. You have a nice website.

I lived in this little village when I was stationee at Lakenheath airbase in the mid seventies and had a great time there. I had several friends at the pub called the Ancor Green. Just before I left there I left a trophy for them to play for each year, I hope they are still playing for it. I hope that everyone in the village is well and if any of you remember me send me an e-mail

Just browsing your site,and was reminded of an incident a few years back here in Sacramento California. My sister was over for a visit and we were at The Touch of Britian for Lunch (ToB) English tea room, there is a guest book to sign unfortunately for a gentleman boasting that no-one have ever heard of the villiage he had lived in, my sister and I both said Burwell, we quite spoiled his thunder poor thing, I have no idea how many years he had been boasting. My sister used to live in Burwell, our brother married a Burwell girl, and I used to work at Tillitsons. Regards EB formerly of Soham

Has anybody got a copy of a programme for the Bank Holiday Motorbike Scrambling on Spring Close from the 50's. An old fella I play golf with, Eric Mitchell used to ride there when he worked for Hallens in Cambridge. He's not too well at present and it would cheer him up no end to see his name in print. I'll happily pay for photocopying and postage. I can be contacted at Rob@sowerby.freeserve.co.uk or on 01202 (Poole) 461467. Thanks

This sort of resource really adds value to local business efforts, property interest, local information -but- (more importantly) gets back to what a community is all about. A group of people linked by where they live - trying to make it a better place for everyone. Good job you lot.

Loved the website. It brought back some fond memories. I am living in Houston Texas now and it was nice to see some photos of home.
I think I remember you Paul Smith. I was at the same schools during the same time.
Also Marj Rayner are you any relation to the Rayners from Ness Road and later the Brickyard. Talking of the Brickyard, I still remember those old chimney stacks.
