Geo-Trips :: Cambridge suburbs and villages

Cambridge

A drive from Flint Cross, Sun, 25 Jun 2023 by David Howard

Beginning in the countryside off the A505, I covered the villages between Royston and Cambridge I hadn't visited yet, then through Cambridge, followed with a visit to the new town of Camborne which is designed roughly like a ship in a bottle, having virtually the whole area only accessible by one road. I returned through more villages before reaching the A1198 heading back towards Royston. It was nice and bright and sunny and no delays which is normal on this route.
