St. Neots

St. Neots is a town in Cambridgeshire, England. It is named after the Saxon monk St. Neot whose bones were houses in a nearby monastery. The pilgrim trade brought prosperity for the town, and it was granted a market charter in 1130. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the town enjoyed further prosperity through corn milling, brewing, stagecoaching, and railways.
