NOTES:  Please read the general notes about these street pages .


The boundary of the ancient parish of Trumpington ran along the centre of Hills Road from Purbeck Road to the modern City boundary south of Addenbrooke's Hospital.  The area north of Long Road was moved into Cambridge in 1912, and the area to the south (along with most of the rest of the village) in 1934.
