St Mary and St John, Hinxton
Hinxton lies in the water meadows to the east of the River Granta. It is a compact, close-knit community, with a local tradition of service to neighbours and to good causes. On the national stage, Hinxton’s claim to fame is as home to the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus at Hinxton Hall, where the race was won to keep the human genome in the public domain. But it is probably more of a source of pride for the village that, over and over again, Hinxton has won the British Legion’s award for Cambridgeshire for the largest donations to the Poppy Appeal per head. Hinxton people look after each other.
