Cambridge District Scout Archive
The list is alphabetical but within each letter generally ordered by date of founding.
Many other villages were involved but not in the formal title. Harston had separate patrols for Harston, Hauxton, Harlston, Newton and Little Eversden. Some of these have never been part of a name of a troop or group. Villages are often linked in titles, such as Sawston with Whittlesford. These variations are not listed here.
As the town boundaries grew villages such as Cherry Hinton became ‘town groups’ rather than ‘district groups’ which are labeled ‘D’.
As the overall district budded other districts many villages stepped outside the boundaries and their history is lost to these records.
Many Groups had several incarnations and the ‘district’ numbering system ended in 1935 so they have several numbers. Numbers were reused during some eras.
‘1st ’s are a change in naming system – 1st Village rather than 21st Cambridge (Village). 1st D is the group currently labeled 1st Cambridge District (Village)
