Melbourn is located in the South Cambridgeshire District, but is served by the Royston, Hertfordshire post town.The Prime Meridian passes to the west of Melbourn.HistoryThe parish has a long history of occupation, stemming from the presence of springs at Melbourn Bury and the several ancient trackways that cross the parish; the Icknield Way runs to the south of the parish and Ashwell Street and the Roman Cambridge-Royston road are also believed to follow prehistoric trackways.
