    Aw, @Over_the_hill, I'm sorry you won't be there - we could have travelled up together!

    It's been years since I was last in Cambridge in autumn.

    Are any of you old enough to wish we could go ro th Eros in Petty Curie?

    45p for moussaka, chips, salad, rice and peas...

    I remember Petty Curie, Lion Yard and Drummond Street Bus Station (or was It Drummer Street?)
    I haven't been to Cambridge for years.

    I've only ever been to the Cambridge Corn Exchange to see the Stereo MCs. That is my only experience of Cambridge.

    Drummer Street Bus Station.

    I've only known Cambridge from 1983 and, to my mind, it has changed beyond recognition.

    Excepting Camdisney the area around King's Parade, down and beyond the backs and over to Robinson College.

    Town and Gown rubbed along fine with the occasional skirmish.

    The killer is the commercialism.

    Camdisney!

    Drummer street Bus Station was re-designed a a few years ago - it's OK actually

    It's Petty Cury by the way.

    I'm just grateful to @bombaysapphire because without her I probably would have already planned my route, my outfit AND picked what I was having to eat!

    Wednesday 23rd October at 1 pm at the Boathouse in my diary. I'll probably use Milton Road Park and Ride if it still exists. I always parked in Gurney Way or Ascham Road but I think those roads are permit holder now with pay to park.

    They were the last roads I ever knew to have free parking round that way. Five minutes walk to the Boathouse.

    I've just looked at the menu - looks yummy! I think I've sorted out my route - thanks to Nomad's comprehensive instructions. I just have to hope that there are no problems on the M11!

    It looks like Madingley Park and ride for me and then a 10 minute walk from Bridge Street-does that sound about right?
