Stapleford is a village located approximately four miles to the south of Cambridge, in the county of Cambridgeshire, in eastern England. Stapleford is first mentioned in 956 when it was given the Latinised name of Stapelforda, formerly Stapleton. Unlike most parishes the spelling has hardly changed since then. The parish, however, was inhabited long before this. Wandlebury Ring, which lies within the parish boundary, is an Iron Age hill fort, originally built in the third century B.C., but rebuilt with a double bank in the first century A.D.

Stapleford is home to three pubs; The Rose, The Longbow and The Tree, St Andrews church, a primary school, several garages, two hairdressers, allotments, a Sunday League football team, several farms and the ever popular SPAR shop on London Road.

Stapleford is twinned with Villedomer, in the Loire region of France. Stapleford is also twinned with Nachingwea, one of the six districts in the Lindi Region of Tanzania.
