St Mary, Shudy Camps
Shudy Camps is a village in Cambridgeshire, in the south-western corner of the shire close to the Essex border. In name and location, it is a pair with the larger village of Castle Camps, which stands just a mile to the southeast.
This is a small place; the 2001 census recorded a population of 310, in a parish of 2,350 acres, including the nearby hamlet of Mill Green. The highest point in the parish is 383 feet above sea level at Mill Green; close to the 420 feet reached at the old site of Castle Camps, which later point is the highest in the county.
Mill Green is a hamlet of Shudy Camps standing to the northeast of the village. There are two old moats here, or the remnant dirches of them, a remembrance of unquiet times beside the quiet lane.
