Bush Pastures Park is located at Fordham in East Cambridgeshire, this is a cosy little village in the heart of rural England. Bush Pastures Residential Park encapsulates the feel of this part of the country, all while keeping you comfortable and relaxed.

The history of Fordham is rich with different settlements, cultures and people. The parish of Fordham has existed for several thousand years - archaeologists have found flint and metal tools and weapons from the early Bronze Age and the Iron Age. There have also been pottery and burials found from around the same time too. There have also been wall plaster and tiles found from the Roman era, which experts believe indicates a presence of villas from the 2nd to 4th centuries.

In the middle ages, Fordham village was home to the Fordham Priory, a Gilbertine priory and cell to Sempringham priory that people believe founded during the reign of Henry III. Founded by Robert de Fordham - for whom the village takes its name. This abbey is now a Grade II listed Georgian manor house and owned by Dojima Sake - a Japanese Brewing company famous for its traditional sake recipe. It is well worth taking a tour and having a guided tasting session as it's the only brewery of its kind in the country.
