We are a group of five parishes (Linton, Bartlow, Castle Camps, Shudy Camps and Horseheath) in south-east Cambridgeshire, close to the borders of Suffolk and Essex, and with a combined population of just over 6000. Linton, the largest settlement, and closest to Cambridge, is approximately 10 miles from the city centre. Formerly mainly farming communities, the villages now have diverse occupations, with some employment on farms and in local businesses. Many commute to nearby towns, with Haverhill, Cambridge, Saffron Walden and Newmarket all within easy reach; others travel to London for work. Worship in each parish centres on its medieval church; information about The Camps and Horseheath can be found at www.3churches.eu
