Introduction to Kennett
Welcome to Kennett, our small village is situated in Cambridgeshire, 6 miles from Newmarket and 13 miles from Bury St Edmunds. We are a short distance from both the A11 and the A14.
Kennett is lucky to have its own station with frequent trains to Cambridge, Ipswich and Peterborough. We have a population of approximately 320 people. We have our own village primary school, an ancient church and a pub that can boast of 4 ghosts. We share our playing field, post office, garage, pavillion and village hall with our neighbouring Suffolk village of Kentford. The village is mentioned in the Doomsday Book:
Chenet: St. Nicholas from William de Warenne. (Perhaps this is where Warren Road at Red Lodge gets its name from).
