Welcome to Horseheath…

Horseheath is a small Cambridgeshire village nestled in the rolling countryside of the south-east corner of the county with boundaries close to both the Suffolk and Essex borders.

Horseheath is around 14 miles from Cambridge, 10 miles from Saffron Walden and 4 miles from Haverhill and well-positioned to benefit from the services these towns have to offer. Horseheath is on the route of the frequent local bus service between Cambridge and Haverhill.

Dear Residents, Following complaints about the reduced capacity bus services in the past few weeks the Parish Council Office raised concerns with Stagecoach. We are pleased to inform everyone that services should improve from 10th May 2021. Please see below the responding statement received from Stagecoach. "Due to government restrictions, we have to limit the number of people who can travel on each bus. Nationally, this has led to a shortage of resources as the lockdown restrictions are eased and more people use the buses to get to work and education. Following discussions between ourselves, the County Council and Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, the decision has been made to temporarily suspend the Milton Park & Ride service from Monday 10th May 2021, in order to move the resources onto routes that are seeing a greater demand for services. This temporary suspension of service will allow for extra buses to be provided, initially on Route 13 and other routes that are experiencing capacity issues, where appropriate"Please inform the office if you experience any further issues with the service after this date. Thank you LPC Office Team ...
