Alpha Terrace in 1908 Cambridgeshire Collection

Alpha Terrace

Built at the end of the 19th century

Alpha Terrace was the first conscious expansion of Trumpington since the building of Whitelocks Yard in the early 1800s.  The terraced houses were built between about 1880 and 1910, and the road was almost complete by 1930.
