About Hatley

Hatley St George and East Hatley are more properly described as hamlets rather than villages.  Although quite a few of us work from home, we are largely a commuting population, albeit with a strong sense of community.

There is another Hatley near by - Cockayne Hatley, which is in Bedfordshire (we're in Cambridgeshire) and historically not connected to 'our' Hatley.

There is more about Hatley St George and East Hatley on the Wikipedia website.
