Designed by Cambridge Consultants, it was built by Moss the builders. It is called Lady Jane, not after Lady Jane Grey, but after Mr Moss’s daughter Jane.
The original plan was to call it “Cavendish Court” but the planners decided there were too many ‘Cavendishes’ in Cambridge already and the ambulance service might get confused.
