Bin Brook

History of Bin Brook

Bin Brook runs east to west across Cambridge. In places it is little more than a ditch but it has caused serious flooding when at times such as October 2001 it has burst its banks. It flow has been made a feature of Robinson College gardens and also at Burrell’s Court, Trinity College. (See 111 Places  In Cambridge That You Shouldn’t Miss p.36)
