Kitchen Splashbacks in Grantchester

Based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Splashbacks of Distinction have a real passion for toughened glass in and around the home. We have transformed many properties, both commercial and domestic with our glass splashbacks, for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices. We cover many areas outside of Hertfordhire too, including Grantchester in Cambridgeshire.

A little Grantchester history

The village of Grantchester is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as Grantesete and Grauntsethe. It is also mentioned briefly in book IV, chapter 19 of Bedes Ecclesiastical History of the English People. John de Grauntsete, a lawyer who had a successful career as a judge in Ireland, was born in Grantchester around 1270. The present name derives from the common Old English suffix ceaster, used in names of forts or fortified cities throughout most of England.

Grantchester is sometimes identified as the Cair Grauth, meaning Fort Granta listed in the History of the Britons among the 28 cities of Britain, but the Roman Duroliponte and subsequent major British and Saxon settlements in the area were at Castle Hill in Cambridge, whose Old English name was Grantabrycge. The confusion arises from the lower stretches of the Granta having been renamed the Cam after the city.

A local legend states that an underground passage runs from the Old Manor house to Kings College Chapel two miles away. It was said that a fiddler who offered to follow the passage set off playing his fiddle; the music became fainter and fainter, until it was heard no more and the fiddler was never seen or heard of again. This story is told of many supposed tunnels. On a 17th century map of Grantchester, one of the fields is called Fiddlers Close.

Grantchester is said to have the worlds highest concentration of Nobel Prize winners, most of these presumably being current or retired academics from the nearby University of Cambridge. Students and tourists often travel from Cambridge by punt to picnic in the meadows or take tea at The Orchard. In 1897, a group of Cambridge students persuaded the owner of Orchard House to serve them tea in its apple orchard, and this became a regular practice. Lodgers at Orchard House included the Edwardian poet Rupert Brooke, who later moved next door to the Old Vicarage. In 1912, while in Berlin, he wrote a poem of homesickness entitled The Old Vicarage, Grantchester. The house is currently the home of the Cambridge scientist Mary Archer and her husband, Jeffrey Archer. Grantchester has been the home since 1969 of the sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld OBE.

Stuck for ideas? Our Cambridge show room is now open

With the ever increasing demand for our fantastic glass products, we have made the decision to open a dedicated glass show room in Canbridge.

We felt that a website was not always the best way to show case our extensive range of toughened glass products, as some people simply want to see and experience them in person.

Our Cambridge showroom will house many examples of our kitchen splashbacks, Julit balconies, glass balustrades and more besides. What better way to make up your mind as to what product would suit your home more than seeing it, feeling it and discussing it with one of our fully trained members of staff?

Our website is always a great starting point when you are considering a new glass splashback, but there are times when seeing a product up close is invaluable.

We are confident that you will love our products as much as we do and look forward to welcoming you to our Cambridge showroom.

This story is told of many supposed tunnels. On a 17th century map of Grantchester, one of the fields is called Fiddlers Close.

The footpath to Cambridge that runs beside Grantchester Meadows is nicknamed the Grantchester Grind. Grantchester Grind is the title of a 1995 comic novel written by Tom Sharpe. Further upstream is Byrons Pool, named after Lord Byron, who is said to have swum there. The pool is now below a modern weir where the Bourn Brook flows into the River Cam. Byrons Pool is a Local Nature Reserve.

Lord Byron

George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron, FRS was born on 22 January 1788 and died 19 April 1824 and was known simply as Lord Byron, was an English poet, peer and politician who became a revolutionary in the Greek War of Independence, and is considered one of the leading figures of the Romantic movement. He is regarded as one of the greatest English poets and remains widely read and influential. Among his best known works are the poems Don Juan and Childe Harolds Pilgrimage; many of his shorter lyrics in Hebrew Melodies also became very popular.

Grantchester is the subject of Grantchester Meadows, which was composed and performed by Roger Waters of the band Pink Floyd. His band mate David Gilmour lived in the village. A few years later, David Gilmour also wrote a song about Grantchester Meadows, called Fat Old Sun. The village is also the setting for James Runcies sleuth novels The Grantchester Mysteries, now adapted as an ITV drama titled Grantchester shown in the UK from autumn 2014 and filmed on location in Grantchester.
