The Parish of The Stukeleys lies to the north-west of the historic market town of Huntingdon and principally comprises the villages of Great and Little Stukeley. It also includes Huntingdon Racecourse and the former Alconbury Airfield.

The main East Coast railway line to London runs through the Parish as does the A14 Trunk Road, giving the Stukeleys exceptional transport links. The villages of Great and Little Stukeley lie astride Ermine Street, the Old Roman Road.

Great Stukeley is a hill-top village which originally comprised of the three 'ends', Church End, Owl End and Green End, grouped around the parkland of Stukeley Hall, a late Georgian country house. There is a fine medieval church, St Bartholomew’s, a Village Hall and the Recreation Ground.  Great Stukeley also has a public house, the Three Horseshoes, and The Stukeleys Country Hotel converted from a 16th Century farmhouse.

Little Stukeley lies in a shallow valley leading down from the higher ground into the wide valley of the Alconbury Brook. There are a number of interesting cottages around the church of St Martin that form a Conservation Area. The large Georgian Old Rectory was the scene of a famous murder in the nineteenth century.

To the immediate north and east of the two villages, and forming the northern boundary of the Parish, lies the former World War Two airfield of Alconbury.   Today this site is jointly occupied by a range of commercial storage activities and the United States Air Force and is the location of Alconbury Weald, now the subject of major redevelopment for 5,000 homes and 8,000 jobs.
