Geo-Trips :: Cambridge suburbs

Cambridge

A drive from Astwick, Sun, 24 Oct 2021 by David Howard

I began covering the little villages from the A1 in Biggleswade and then covered a lot of the Cambridge suburbs on the east side and trying to get into squares I hadn't before. There are still a couple of major diversions on the ring road but I managed to avoid them this time. There's a lot of building going on around the edge with some very nice modern housing.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
