The Mill Road History Society is delighted that some of the buildings on Mill Road which we have researched are featured on the Mill Road Lantern Trail. Our research can all be found on the website https://capturingcambridge.org/ which most of the links below will take you to.
In some cases, what you will see on the landing page is what there is; in others, you will a see downloadable PDF of a ‘building report’. You may well not have time to read the whole thing but if you download that and browse through, you will see lots of photographs and find lots of stories.
