Chelston Rise

The houses here were originally built to house families of American servicemen who were working on the airbase. There was a school on site for the children, and play equipment. When the USAF left the airbase, it was used by airmen working at Alconbury base for several years, but was finally sold about 2010, and is now private housing.
