Fulbourn is a large village of over 6000, situated on the south eastern edge of Cambridge and surrounded on three sides by agricultural land. Archaeological evidence of habitation in the area has been found dating as far back as the Neolithic period, and there have also been numerous finds from the Roman and Anglo-saxon periods as well.
The name has so far been traced back to 991 AD and is thought to derive from the Anglo-saxon "Fugleburn" meaning "stream freqented by waterfowl".

The Fulbourn Village History Society is always happy to welcome new members.
In fact, some early maps even depict "Fulbourn Magna" and "Fulbourn Parva".
However a research project conducted by the Fulbourn Village History Society came to the conclusion that there was only ever one Fulbourn.
(The full report of the project entitled "In Search of Fulbourn" is available free to members of the FVHS, or the PDF can be purchased separately.)The project also investigated another fascinating landmark in Fulbourn; a medieval moated site.
The site at Hall Orchard, known as Dunmowes survives as an earthwork and has a water filled moat when suitable conditions exist.
The excavations that were undertaken show that the moated area had been occupied from at least the early 13th century until the late 17th century.
