Sketching Cambridge by Michael Large
AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THE LANDMARK BUILDINGS OF CAMBRIDGE
Sketching Cambridge was created by Hills Road Sixth Form student Michael Large for his Extended Project
Sketching Cambridge was created by Hills Road Sixth Form student Michael Large for his Extended Project assessment in 2021. The Museum of Cambridge is very grateful to Michael for his permission to make the text and illustrations available on Capturing Cambridge.
Cambridge is too often seen as nothing but a university city. The town outside the gown is packed full of rich historical, global and personal colour, which I have always wanted to share as a native of the city. Buildings tell the most fascinating stories from our shared histories, so I have chosen 25 buildings and neighbourhoods from across the city to tell the story of Cambridge, my home.

I was pleased to be of assistance to Michael, on the section about Cherry Hinton Hall, seen above. He has produced some really fantastic drawings for his project and compiled some really interesting information. Do take a look at the complete project which can be seen by following the link given above for 'Sketching Cambridge'
This is the blog page for my articles, memories and archives relating to the archaeology and local history of Cherry Hinton, a village to the south east of Cambridge UK. The area covered is the old Parish of Cherry Hinton which today includes the Ward of Queen Edith's.
