The Gibbet

Caxton Gibbet is a roundabout where the A1198 (formerly A14 Ermine Street) crosses the A428 (formerly A45). It is named after the hanging gibbet at the location.

At the site there is a petrol station on the A428 to the west, and a small retail park (replacing a pub that became a chinese restaurant before being demolished) containing predominantly food outlets to the south on the A1198.

During the 2000s-2010s, the roundabout marked the end of the dual carriageway A428 from Cambridge, with single carriageway from there to St Neots. In March 2017 proposals were released to improve the road from here to the Black Cat Roundabout as part of an improvement scheme which would replace the roundabout at this location with a dumbbell.
