(O.S. 6 in. (a)XXVI S.W., (b)XXVII N.E.)

Eynesbury Hardwicke is a parish in two almost detached portions, lying S.E. of St. Neots.


a(1). Homestead Moat and enclosure at Chapel Yard, 3 m. E. of Eynesbury church. The enclosure is rectangular and lies to the S.W. of the moat. The adjoining field contains a number of ditches and banks.

b(2). Homestead Moat, on the N. of the road to Abbotsley and 1¾ m. S.E. of Eynesbury church.

b(3). Eynesbury Hardwicke, house and moat, 2½ m. S.S.E. of Eynesbury church. The House is of two storeys, timber-framed and plastered; the roofs are tiled. It was built about the middle of the 17th century with a cross-wing at the N.E. end; there is a modern wing at the S.W. end. Inside the building one room has an original moulded ceiling-beam and the first-floor rooms have chamfered ceiling-beams. There is also a late 17th-century panelled door and a door made up of 17th-century panelling.

The Moat surrounds the house.

Condition—Of house, fairly good.

a(4). Caldecote Manor Farm, house and moat, 2¾ m. E.S.E. of Eynesbury church. The House is of two storeys with attics, timber-framed with brick facing; the roofs are covered with tiles and slates. It was built early in the 17th century on a modified L-shaped plan with the wings extending towards the W. and N. Early in the 18th century the N. wing was remodelled and faced with brick; the rest of the house was subsequently faced with brick and otherwise altered. Inside the building there are some exposed ceiling-beams.

The Moat partly surrounds the house.

Condition—Of house, good.
