Westwick is a hamlet in Cambridgeshire, in England. It is situated to the north-west of Cambridge, and is part of the parish of Oakington and Westwick.[1] Earthworks suggest that it is a shrunken medieval village.

History[edit]

A large grassed area of earthworks, on the west side of Oakington Road and north of Oakington Brook, is believed to contain houses, track ways and ponds that originate from the Medieval period.[2] The earthworks are very easily observed from Oakington Road.
