Hamerton – in Huntingdonshire (now part of Cambridgeshire), England – is a village near Winwick west of Huntingdon.[1] Hamerton Zoo is on the north side of the village. The village has a church dedicated to All Saints.

The civil parish of Hamerton and Steeple Gidding incorporates the nearby hamlet of Steeple Gidding, which has a 14th-century church St Andrew's, now redundant and preserved by the Churches Conservation Trust.[2] Along with its nearby neighbour Great Gidding, it forms part of a cluster of villages known as The Giddings.[3]
