About
Exning










Exning is a village in Suffolk,  It lies just off the A14 trunk road, roughly 12 miles (19 km) east-northeast of Cambridge, and 10 miles (16 km) south-south-east of Ely. The nearest large town is Newmarket which is 2 miles to the south.


This website has been established by residents of the village to provide a focus for information about the village, links to the many websites in the village and a home to the Exning section of the “22 Villages” website produced to celebrate the millennium.


Exning is reputed to have been the capital of the Iceni tribe and therefore the home of Queen Boadicea (Boudicca)(Local Lore). She appears on the village sign.


Christianity came to Exning in AD630 with the conversion of King Anna. Exning is reputed to have been the birthplace of his daughter Saint Etheldreda, to whom the cathedral at Ely is dedicated.

After over 1300 years it is good that there is still a lively worshipping church in the village

Exning Community Church Hall (ECCH) is the venue for many local activities including Music Builds Communities (MBC), fitness sessions, dancing, activities for children and young people, committee meetings, and as a cinema.


If you want to know more about the history of Exning there are 2 excellent books which are available from the Post Office:’

You may have noticed that our village clock is silent at the moment!  The church clock was stopped at noon Thursday 16th January and dismantled ready for new electric winding gear to be installed.  It is getting too difficult to continue with the manual winding. The work will take around 3 weeks to complete. The order for the bell repairs has been issued; start date is awaited, but completion by the end of March has been requested and our clock will chime again then!
