Queen Edith’s Community Forum

Queen Edith's Communtiy Forum

The contribution of  information about the Queen Edith’s area of Cambridge City to the Capturing Cambridge Project is an initiative of the Queen Edith’s Community Forum.

We are very grateful for the existence and support of a number of organisations, individuals and institutions for the collection of resources that we have been able to make use of. In particular the Cambridgeshire Collection at the Central Library in Cambridge, the National Newspaper Archive and the work of local historian Mike Petty.

There is a volunteer local editor for the Queen Edith’s section of this site, Roger Lilley. Suggestions, corrections and contributions can be sent to him on:

We are particularly looking for historical photographs of the area and also for those who have personal reminiscences of life in the area and who are willing to have these published on the site.

Our aim to create a community resource that will reflect the diversity and traditions of this part of the city.

Dear Visitor,


Thank you for exploring historical Cambridgeshire! We hope you enjoy your visit.


Did you know that we are a small, independent Museum and that we rely on donations from people like you to survive?


If you love Capturing Cambridge, and you are able to, we’d appreciate your support today.


Every donation makes a world of difference.
