The parish of Ickleford projects north into Bedfordshire, which borders it to the north-west, north and east. Ickleford is the only settlement in the parish. Cadwell, on the north-eastern edge of the parish, used to be a detached part of Holwell.
Ickleford Parish Council’s website has a lot of information about the village.
Ickleford does not appear in Domesday Book; it was a part of Pirton at the time, although Cadwell, which is the first of the two entries under Holwell, does.
