7 St Peter’s Terrace, Trumpington Street

History of 7 St Peter's Terrace

Royal Commission Survey of Cambridge 1959: the site was advertised to let on building leases for a term of forty years in the Cambridge Chronicle for 30 Nov. 1850, plans and elevations being prescribed; application was to be made to Elliot Smith. In St Peter’s Terrace the revived Roman and the contemporary styles are combined with virtuosity and much logic in a street-front of architectural distinction.
