In western Cambridgeshire lies St Neots, a market town with a rich history. As a former pilgrimage centre in England and the site of a Norman Castle, the town started rapidly in the 20th century after the second world war as an ‘overspill town’ to accommodate citizens of London as the capital’s population increased. Today the town is home to technology based industries and the developments in the area will, it is projected, increase the town’s population by 25,000 by 2036. In the last year alone, reallymoving helped 274 people move into the town.
Located in the historic county of Cambridgeshire, St Neots has a real mix of older buildings (with over 150 listed buildings in the town) and newer developments. More modern properties are probably less likely to need a more thorough inspection by a Chartered Surveyor as they should be architecturally sound and have modern wiring and piping installed, and therefore these are more suitable for a HomeBuyer Report, as opposed to a more meticulous Building Survey, which older buildings, or buildings that have been subject to recent flooding by the Great Ouse may need, to ensure they adhere to modern requirements and are structurally sound.
With reallymoving you’ll have moved into your house in no time at all and will be able to start exploring. Whether visiting the Paxton Pits Nature Reserve or going to Cineworld, there is plenty to do in the town.
