Almoners Avenue

Notes on the history of Almoner's Avenue, Cambridge

In 1950 the land here, which had belonged to St Thomas’s Hospital, was designated for residential purposes and in 1961 a more detailed planning permission for 64 detached dwellings and garages was granted.

The name of this road is another connection with a hospital. The Almoner was the medieval hospital official who gave out alms.
