Nightingale Avenue

Notes on the history of Nightingale Avenue, Cambridge

Because of the proximity of the hospital this road is named after Florence Nightingale. More information about her can be found here:

Nightingale Park

It is thought that the land of this park was once owned by the builder Charles Kerridge.

1961 28/11 (from the Cambridge News)

Nightingale Avenue means something new in elegant living. It means spacious, modern four-bedroomed detached houses of quality and character by Trend Homes. Here is a rare opportunity to buy an exclusive architect designed house in a first-class position. Each will have the wonderful boon of oil fired heating, built-in wardrobes and French doors to a paved terrace. Price from £5,25
