My mother Elizabeth Toller-Brown and her brother, my uncle, Dave Toller playing in what was the fields behind their new house in Netherhall Way c.1956. Beaumont Road estate has since been built upon these fields.
This is a view from the top of Lime Kiln Hill looking across the City of Cambridge. It's one of the great places to see the city and fantastic sunsets. It's also little known, many people not realising that such a 'hill' occurs by the city! In the picture is my mother Elizabeth Toller-Brown and her brother, my uncle Dave Toller - they had just moved from the other side of town (Oxford Road) to just towards the bottom of this hill on Netherhall Way.
