This chapter focuses on the new home of Sir Herbert and Lady Butterfield in Sawston, a place far enough from Cambridge to allow them to make a fresh start, but, being right on the bus line, close enough for them to go into Cambridge whenever they liked. The village differed from Oxenhope. Sawston was smaller and, instead of hills, was surrounded by flat, fertile land, with new housing developments rising to the north, and it possessed no industrial legacy. The village had a few Methodists, a dominant Anglican parish, and a significant Roman Catholic presence. Sawston Hall, a fine Elizabethan stately home, had remained in the hands of Roman Catholic nobility through the centuries. Many of the inhabitants of the village and the adjacent housing estates oriented themselves towards Cambridge.
