Huntingdon and Godmanchester
Sunday 8th November 2015
Recently I've been feeling a bit of a draw to the countryside, and have been toying with the idea of maybe buying a house in the country again. Given my office will be moving to Kings Cross next year, it seemed like a good time to start exploring places along the train line from there. So today we gave Huntingdon / Godmanchester a go.
