    Lightbulb Cambridge



    Is it just a bridge over the Cam?

    No, obviously not.

    So what is Cambridge??

    Is it not named after a bridge over the Cam? I thought it was.

    Apparently it used to be called Grantebrycge, or "Grantabridge", as the Cam used to be called the Granta river.

    (Football) Cambridge United are the 5th-best non-league club, according to the tables.

    Yeah, apparently they changed the name of the river to Cam, after the city was called Cambridge.

    Best boozer in Cambridge is the Fort on midsummer common. It was my favourite anyway.

    Weirdly, I have never, to the best of my knowledge, been to Cambridge.

    It's great. Or it was 20 years ago anyway, I'm sure it hasn't changed that much.

    I always picture it as having flat greens to sit and picnic on and the houses being made of grey stone. It's always sunny in my head too.
