Spaldwick is a village in Huntingdonshire, to the west of the county town, Huntingdon. The closest villages to it are Catworth to the west, Easton, Huntingdonshire to the east and Stow Longa down the lane to the south. Barham is found to the north, across the A14.

Sopaldwick is an attractive village, centred around its Green and is particularly noted for the period houses in the High Street and the bridge which carries the Thrapston Road over the brook; the bridge dates from the 15th Century.

The village is dominated by the church whose spire soars to 152 feet. Another feature of the church is its ornate Norman north doorway.

The one village pub is The George Inn, adjacent to the Manor in the High Street, which is of the 16th Century and thrives as a traditional pub with a restaurant.

Spaldwick is a small place, but besides the church and the pub it has a school, a playgroup, a service station, a village shop (called "Number Twelve").[1]

Across from the school is a children's playground, and behind the houses are trees and walking paths.
