Bridge Street

History of Bridge Street

Bridge Street circa 1910. The orientation of the photo is unclear because of changes to the buildings.

In Roman times the section from the bridge as far as the site of the later Round Church was a causeway. It was part of the Via Devana. (Peter Bryan, Shaping the City, 2008)

A brief description of Bridge Street can be found here:,_Cambridge
