Archaeologists and researchers have traced Yelden's history back to the Neolithic Period with evidence of the Early Britons, Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Normans, Medieval through to modern times. The Norman Motte and Baileys are a spectacular sight as you drive through the High Street. Originally the Normans would have placed a Wooden Flat-Pack Castle on the Motte (mound) eventually replacing it with local stone. When the De Trailley Barons died out the stone was used to build the Church. It is said that stone left over was taken to help build Kimbolton Castle
History of Village Hall
The original Village Hall was a corrugated building with a hall and facilities. By the 1990s it had become tired and developed considerable problems. Various concepts were approached until it was decided to acquire a reasonable plot of land and build a new Village Hall. The new Hall was commissioned in 2002 and provides full Hall facilities and grounds with a car park, field and children's play area. All this was possible because of support from the Village, Donations and the National Lottery Grant. The Village Hall Chairman Mike Ellis and the Committee provided the Village and Users with an excellent facility and reputation. Since Mike's retirement in 2016 the Committee and new members have provided a commitment to uphold the Hall's standing in the locality.
