Victory Way & Stevens Close, Cottenham

History of Victory Way, Cottenham

See Cottenham in Focus, 2002.

The houses here were built on orchards after WWII and were offered to servicemen house in huts at ‘Ten Acre’ field off Histon Road.

Stevens Close was named after the long-serving District Nurse Vere Stevens. She came to Cottenham in 1938 and boarded with Frederick and May Maskell until her retirement in 1967.
