Stapleford is a village located approximately 4 miles to the south of Cambridge, in the county of Cambridgeshire, in eastern England on the right hand bank of the River Granta. Stapleford is first mentioned in 956 when it was given the Latinised name of Stapelforda, formerly Stapleton. Unlike most parishes the spelling has hardly changed since then. The parish, however, was inhabited long before this. Wandlebury Ring, which lies within the parish boundary, is an Iron Age hill fort, originally built in the 3rd century BC, but rebuilt with a double bank in the 1st century AD. More recently, the village found fame with the discovery that Barack Obama is a direct descendant of one Thomas Blossom, who grew up here towards the end of the 16th century before emigrating to the United States.Stapleford is home to two pubs,The Rose and The Three Horseshoes,. The village also is home to Saint Andrews church, a primary school, several garages, two hairdressers, allotments, a youth football club, a cricket team and several farms.Famous ex-residents include Robert Huff (racing driver).Stapleford is twinned with Villedomer, in the Loire region of France. Stapleford is also twinned with Nachingwea, one of the six districts in the Lindi Region of Tanzania.
