The x =0 parent compound of the Ca2+x Y2-xCu5O10 family of quasi-one-dimensional copper oxides was investigated by neutron powder diffraction. Long range antiferromagnetic order, with ferromagnetic alignment of the moments along the copper oxide chains, was observed below TN = 29.5 K. The low temperature ordered moment is 0.92 μB, close to the free ion value. The results are compared to observations on other magnetically ordered copper oxides.
