This is my mum Elizabeth Brown (nee Toller) with her nephew, my cousin, Christopher Brown, siting on a log by the brook in the grounds of Cherry Hinton Hall.
This is me playing on the playpark in the grounds of Cherry Hinton Hall. The playpark has changed many times since I was little but is still in the same area of the Hall. I never knew that I'd grow up to become the official historian for Cherry Hinton Hall!
This is my mum, Elizabeth Brown (nee Toller) walking our dogs in the grounds of Cherry Hinton Hall. The classic Silver Cross pram has my little sister Lynsey in :)...
This is a picture of one of the weirs at Cherry Hinton Hall. There are four weirs within the water course which is know as Hinton Brook. Hinton Brook flows from Spring Head at the Robin Hood Junction on the High Street of Cherry Hinton.
The weirs were put in place in the mid 1800's by John Okes, in conjunction with Cambridge University and Town Water Works Company, to help the flow of water through the grounds of the newly built Cherry Hinton Hall.
John Okes was a surgeon at Addenbrookes Hospital and had Cherry Hinton Hall built in 1835.
There is now a great new group 'Friends of Cherry Hinton Hall'
