I-Spy History around the Cambridge War Memorial

I-Spy History trail around the Cambridge War Memorial

Look up, look down, look all around your local area and become a history detective! Much of the area around the War Memorial has been developed in the last fifty years. The Osborne Arms, a two hundred year old pub, was demolished recently, but there some features left that tell the history of the area.

See how many of these things you can find – they are all close by around the War Memorial and the junction of Hills and Station Road.
