The parish of Waresley contains ~2k acres. It is well wooded, the chief woods being Waresley, Weavely & Sand Wood. There is a deer park in Waresley Park, which is to the west of the village. The subsoil is Ampthill clay and lower green-sand. The village lies on the main road from Biggleswade to St. Ives, two and a half miles from Gamlingay station on the London Midland and Scottish Railway. A skeleton with a small "Roman" jug in its hand was found in 1740 near Balls Bridge over Gransden Brook. Parts of a homestead moat exist at Vicarage Farm.
The parish was inclosed under a private Act of Parliament in 1808.
