Castle Hill Cambridge, 1984
Michelle Bullivant and sisters out for a walk around Castle Hill area in Cambridge, in the snow around 1984. That day we climbed up Castle Hill and played in the snow - we would often go to this small area of Cambridge and sometimes visit the Cambridge Folk Museum (now Museum of Cambridge).

Outings during the War -WWII Cambridge
As written by my aunt Val Burroughs ( nee Toller ) March 2005.
During the war we didn't go away for holidays.
We used to walk from Oxford Road [Cambridge] to the 'Backs' - the backs of the collages, sometimes pushing our dolls' prams. We would enjoy the crocuses, daisies, lingcups etc. Occasionally when uncles were home on leave we would go as a family. When Uncle George was home, he and Auntie Marie would take us to the Botanical Gardens in Bateman Street.
My mother and my granny used to take us to the Folk Museum, one of our favorite places. We would admire the wax dolls in their dolls' prams especially. ( Enid Porter, the curator was a friend of my Auntie Marie [Cruden] in later years though, as far as I know ) We used to climb Castle Hill opposite the Folk Museum.
