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.

    Love looking at all the small architectural details. Lots of civic pride on display.

    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’.

    Amazing that Trumpington is in the Domesday Book, who knew! As we commented when we saw this, what a lovely mustard that house is.
