A ride around Cambridge—a set of black and white photos

A typical scene on the River Cam
This afternoon I decided to take out the Pashley Guv’nor and visit, in turn, Car Dyke (the Roman Canal at Waterbeach), Landbeach church (where it is likely Matthew Parker and Erasmus would occasionally have worshipped), Worts Meadow (with the remains of a medieval manor), Giant’s Hill (the early medieval anarchy castle remains at Rampton) and, lastly, the “Cellarer’s Chequer” once connected to Barnwell Priory.

It’s a splendid reminder that in a county dismissed by some "as rather boring" that, on so short a ride (25 miles at most), so much of interest can be seen.
