Welcome to the Trumpington History Trails, a set of 10 trails about Trumpington and its links to surrounding villages and Cambridge. We hope that long-established and new residents will find the trails to be a fascinating way to discover more about the history of the area.
 
The concept of the Trumpington History Trails was conceived by Andrew Roberts, Trumpington Residents’ Association, and Ken Hay, Cambridge City Council, in November 2010, as a way of supporting the development of an integrated community in Trumpington. The Trails were developed by the Trumpington Residents’ Association and the Trumpington Local History Group, with support from Cambridge City Council. See below for links to the online versions:

 

Trail 1: The Historic Centre of Trumpington .
Trail 2: Trumpington and Cambridge .
Trail 3: South of the Village Centre .
Trail 4: East of the Village Centre .
Trail 5: Clay Farm, Hobson’s Park, Nine Wells .
Trail 6: Trumpington Meadows Country Park and Nature Reserve and Byron’s Pool .
Trail 7: Trumpington to Hauxton and Shelfords .
Trail 8: Trumpington to Great Shelford .
Trail 9: Trumpington to Grantchester .

Printed copies of the Trails were first published in September 2016. They are available free of charge from Trumpington Pavilion and The Clay Farm Centre.
