Harston is the first village coming south out of Cambridge on the A10 and has an excellent range of day-to-day facilities, plus exceptionally easy road links both into the City and south towards Royston and London.
A new purpose-built, road traffic free cycle route has recently opened that leads over the M11, into Trumpington and on to the City. There is also a regular bus service which is a most useful asset.
