Our neighbourhood

These are some photos I took of our part of Cambridge. Here they are:

This is of our house, it is a terrace house and has three storeys.

This is our street. You can see all the identical terrace houses, Our house is to the left of the street.

This is just outside our local butchers.

This is our Post Office. Inside they also sell magazines, chocolates and other food.

This is the path through our local park. There is also an excellent playground there.

This is Coe Fen. It snowed recently so now it has melted, it is incredibly boggy in the fen.

This is a pub near our house. They have great pizza, desserts and others things there. I know this is true because I have been there and eaten some pizza.

These are some large water-birds we saw. We are not sure whether they are ducks, swans or geese.

These two photos are of a lamp-post and a lane near our house. There are a lot of these around England.


  1. Hi Jacob, Happy New year! All your family blogs are just fabulous. I really love the photos you have included, especially the snowwoman. The scenery is beautiful. You're so lucky to be staying in such a beautiful part of England. Your info about the legends in interesting and the plasticene and lego creations are very impressive. I love the poems that you have all copied. Can you read them in a Scottish accent?
    Challenge. What does this Scottish mean?: "It's a braw bricht moonlicht nicht the nicht" Bye for now, Mrs Southam

  2. Thankyou Mrs Southam! I'm glad you like my blog! I listened on the internet to someone reading the poems in a scottish accent and I can say some of the words with one. I think "It's a braw bricht moonlicht nicht the nicht" means "It's a splendid bright moonlit night tonight."

  3. Hi Jake, love your photos. They give such a good sense of the little community where you live. I'm pretty sure that the white birds are geese. Not sure what type. Love Grandad
