Molesworth is a village in Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire, England about 10 miles (16 km) west of Huntingdon. The village was designated a conservation area by Huntingdon District Council largely due to its typically rural English character that includes several listed buildings.
Saint Peter's Church stands on the west of the village and consists of a chancel, nave and tower. The chancel was built around 1275 but the presence of several 12th century stones suggests that an earlier stone church may have existed on the site.
The village gives its name to RAF Molesworth, a Royal Air Force station dating back to 1917. RAF Molesworth no longer has an active runway. It is the home to the Joint Analysis Center, the intelligence fusion centre supporting the United States European Command and NATO.
