Waterbeach barracks and airfield is a unique place, nestled in a beautiful and established landscape, connected to a popular and dynamic village.

The next evolution of the site will work with the centuries of history on and around the site: growing along the Causeway route, connecting the existing village to the re-energised barracks district through its unique waterfront and onwards towards Denny Abbey.
