Abbots Ripton is a village in Cambridgeshire and lies approximately 4 miles north of Huntingdon. The village is home to the 18th century Abbots Ripton Hall, a Grade II listed building that was built on the site of the old manor house and now is home to gardens, parkland and an ornamental lake. Abbots Ripton has a shop, garage, and a post office as well as the only public house in the village, called the Abbot’s Elm. The market town of Huntingdon lies on the north bank of the River Great Ouse, opposite Godmanchester and close to the market town of St Ives in the east and the village of Brampton in the west. Huntingdon is home to many shopping opportunities and is served by local pubs. It has also served as a horse race course and once was a centre for aviation.
