Bermuda Road (western end)
History of Bermuda Road
Matching the surviving properties at the west end of Bermuda Road with the historic information is a little difficult.
West of no. 15 there are now three old cottages, nos 13 and 14, and detached, no. 12.
The OS maps in the early 20th century show gardens west of no. 15. Most of the properties were demolished, probably in the late 20th century.
The 1925 map shows how originally Bermuda Road ran into Histon Road.
