The Parish of Cam lies in the Vale of Gloucester, south of Gloucester, north of Bristol and close to the market town of Dursley.
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.
