Trumpington Street

Buildings on Trumpington Street Cambridge

Trumpington is a village to the southwest of Cambridge city. The village is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and it is still identifiable as a village but there is a lot of new development, too.

Trumpington Street runs from the city to Trumpington, and this is the stretch opposite the Fitzwilliam Museum. It is a mile or two from the city centre, looking towards the centre. It’s pretty, no?

If I get my act together I will post more photos over time.

    1. You are right. It’s true – and the University Colleges led the way with fine buildings. Even today when there is a small infill development you can see the architectural design (that costs more money) is ‘above standard’.
