Galleries: Upwood, Huntingdonshire

Upwood was described in an 1868 edition of National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland as a "place of great antiquity". The church which you see pictured was constructed in about 1100, replacing an earlier wooden church mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Survey, which named the village ias "Upwode". According to the National Gazetteer, just after the time of the Norman Conquest the parish had been given to Ramsey Abbey by a man named as "Ailwin the Saxon". Ailwin (or Aylwin) had himself been given a gift of Upwood House, which had been built in about 992AD.
