    Cam Parish Councillors - 2021

Cam is a large village and civil parish in Gloucestershire, situated in the Cotswolds close to the town of Dursley, north of Bristol and south of Gloucester.

The first written record of Cam is in the Doomsday book 1086-90. The original spelling was "Camma", Celtic and pre-Christian in origin, possibly meaning river in the valley. It is thought to have been the oldest village in the district.

Its history is closely associated with the woollen industry, with several old mills still in existence. There has been considerable residential development from the middle of the twentieth century and Cam is now a thriving community with a population of approximately 8,500 people, represented by a Parish Council with 16 members.

The Cotswold Way runs less than a mile from the village and it is proud to be the home of Cam and Dursley station.
