Wilburton is a small village of just over 1,000 inhabitants, situated in
Cambridgeshire, England. The village is on a ridge between Strethamand Haddenham.
While nominally an agricultural village, many of the inhabitants work in
Cambridge, Elyor London.
For the last few hundred years, the Pell family were the prominent local landowners, sponsoring the somewhat optimistic Ely to Wilburton railway in the late 1800s.
There is St.Peter's Church, parts of which date from the 13th century.
There is a fine Elizabethan manor house, a shop, a garden centre and a pub, the King's Head.
The village is known for its fireworks display around Guy Fawkes night and its beer festival in the summer. In 2005 it also held its first spring beer festival.
