Portholme in Godmanchester

Located over the river from Gatehouse Estate Agents in Godmanchester, Portholme, formerly  known as Cromwell’s Acres is famous as the largest meadow in England. You can walk from Godmanchester across Portholme to Huntingdon and Brampton.

It was for centuries, the scene of Huntingdon horse races. Portholme’s circuit was two miles in circumference. The races began on the first Tuesday in August each year and continued for 3 days. Such an annual event was eagerly anticipated by locals as the major summer festival. It really was pretty sophisticated, the course being well endowed with grandstands, footbridges and other facilities and with supplementary activities – fairgrounds, cockfighting, boxing etc. In 1887 six local sportsmen bought Waterloo Meadow at Brampton and created the present Huntingdon race course.

Godmanchester Estate Agent Summits Kilimanjaro

Three friends from Huntingdonshire, including Godmanchester Estate Agent, Phillip Malley have kicked, dribbled and volleyed their way to the top of the world’s tallest freestanding mountain, raising over £10,000 for charity.

Dominic Durose, 31, from Hinchingbrooke Park, Phillip Malley, 33, from Godmanchester and Simon Baker, 32, from Brampton, took just four days to dribble a football to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.

The team began their challenge on March 14 and along with two Tanzanian guides, made their way up 65 miles of rugged terrain.

Phillip, from Gatehouse Estates admits he was not even that keen on football, said it was a challenging time reaching the summit – a huge 19,344ft (5,896m) above sea level.

He told The Hunts Post: “The first few days were relatively straightforward with few dribbling difficulties, but the summit attempt was something completely different.

“The slope up to the crater rim was incredibly steep, like walking up a Black Ski run, making it difficult to negotiate, let alone dribble with a football.

“Reaching the summit was an intense six hours of concentration, determination and teamwork, but once we made it to Gilman’s Point (18,638ft or 5,681m) on the crater rim we dared to believe that our outrageous challenge might just be possible.”

The money raised by the three men will be donated to the Kick4Life Appeal, which promotes HIV/AIDS awareness in southern Africa through the use of football. The money will help support HIV education for orphans in Lesotho.
