Chalk and Cherry!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the two fascinating ‘Chalk and Cherry!’ walking tours led by the wonderful Landscape Archaeologist and Local Historian Michelle Bullivant.
The event was held as part of Open Cambridge 2021 and provided an insight into the heritage of Cherry Hinton and the origins of the village. Along with sharing the history of the 34 Cherry trees planted to commemorate the servicemen – and one woman – who lost their lives in WWII, Michelle’s walk included hidden wildlife spaces along the route.
The tour shed a light on the aspects of the local area which have informed Janetka Platun’s proposals for artworks for the new homes being built. Everyone who came along also had their heights measured on a Cherry tally stick; these measurements will form part of the final artwork.
