TL3259 : Sackville Way, Cambourne

Sackville Way, Cambourne
Sackville Way, Cambourne
In a walk around the "town", the only remotely-interesting building I saw (it's the police station). Otherwise all is pastiche. The facing houses are on Back Lane.
Cambourne was built from scratch from 1998 on farmland. There are clearly attempts to create a 'community feel', but it is anaemic. Perhaps it's unfair to judge such a young settlement, but communities tend to arise organically rather than being willed into existence by local authorities.
