Church End, Gamlingay

History of Church End, Gamlingay

In the 1911 census there seems to be only one property listed on Church End, adjacent to Dutter End. However, in modern times (2022) Church End seems to extend quite far from the village. So the exact location of the Norman property is currently uncertain.
