130 Mill Road

History of 130 Mill Road

1941:

Michael Bowyer in ‘Air Raid!’ pub. 1986, describes how in the afternoon of 30 January a German bomber came into Cambridge at low level from Ely and dropped nine 50kg HEs at 15:57, straddling Mill Road bridge. Bombs burst in the Corporation store yard, and then 130 Mill Road and the next house were shattered by a direct hit. Two civilians were killed and ten injured.
