Cambridge: looking upstream at Garret Hostel Bridge
Cambridge: looking upstream at Garret Hostel Bridge
Trinity Punts are based at this bridge, and the river is a chaotic mass of beginners zigzagging, experienced punters including those taking parties in extra-wide craft, and boats being moved between the "sidings" area on the west side of the river and the point on the east side where people board and alight.
On the left, the gardens of Trinity Hall; to their right, the classical buildings of Clare College.
River Cam
The River Cam is a tributary of the River Great Ouse in the east of England. The two rivers join to the south of Ely at Pope's Corner. The Great Ouse connects the Cam to England's canal system (via the Middle Level Navigations and the River Nene) and to the North Sea at King's Lynn. The total distance from Cambridge to the sea is about 40 mi (64 km).
