Chapel Hill, Haslingfield

History of Chapel Hill, Haslingfield

This is the location of footpath that runs west from the road; it is called Mare Way and, according to the ‘Walk and Look Round Haslingfield’ guide pub.1994, may have prehistoric origins. It probably continued to Harston passing the round barrows on Money Hill.

At the junction with the road there used to be a farm building known as Chapel Bush and before that a Chapel of Our Lady of White Hill. This was a popular place of pilgrimage at Easter and was en route to the shrine of St Etheldreda at Ely.
