This short stroll explores the ancient city of Cambridge U.K. I started Gwydir Street at 52.20123°N & 00.13869°E. At the corner of Mill Road and Gwydir Street located at 52.19968°N & 00.13825°E I started heading 200° along Mill Road. St Barnabas Church is located at 52.19953°N & 00.13814°E. It’s worth going into the Livingstone’s coffee shop and having a look around inside of the church. I continued along Mill Road and onto Parker’s Piece located at 52.20200°N & 00.13048°E. This is a very large green open space that’s enjoyed by locals as well as people visiting the city. I went along Regent Street and then onto Downing Street. Here I visited the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences located with the Downing Site of the University of Cambridge at 52.20268°N & 00.12171°E. This museum hosts a very impressive collection of very ancient fossils as well as casts and admission is free but a donation is always welcomed. When I left there I visited St. Botolph’s Church along Trumpington Street at 52.20237°N & 00.11767°E and then Great St Mary’s Church at the corner of Trinity Street & St. Mary’s Street at 52.20540°N & 00.11792°E. Both sites are a must see when in Cambridge. Great St. Mary’s recently hosted the funeral of Stephen Hawking on March 31st, 2018. From there I just walked about the river Cam and the perimeter of a couple of the colleges before making my way back to the start point.
Happy Trails.
