This bridge is located in the southwest of central Cambridge linking Queen's Road to the west with Trumpington Street to the east.

This College is notable as the only college founded by the Cambridge townspeople. It was established in 1352 by the Guilds of Corpus Christi and the Blessed Virgin Mary making it the sixth oldest college in Cambridge.

King's was founded in 1441 by Henry VI soon after he founded its sister college in Eton. However the King's plans for the college were disrupted by the War of the Roses, a scarcity of funds and his deposition. Little progress was made on the college until 1508 when Henry VII began to take an interest. The building of the college's chapel begun in 1446 was finally finished in 1544 during the reign of Henry VIII. King's College Chapel is regarded as one of the greatest examples of late Gothic English architecture.

Another shot of our departure & return point.

Setting out on our Punt ride!

This was where we set out on our "Punting expedition"!!!

A beautifully kept cemetery in which several members of the 306th Bomb Group, Eighth U.S. Air Force, stationed at Thurleigh and colleagues of my late father, are interred.

This statue is situated near the house. It was sculpted by Percy Bentham and the plaster original was exhibited in 1922 at the Royal Academy. It was cast in bronze and presented to the city by the Coventry Boy Foundation and installed in 1968.
