The Giant's Grave
The Giant's Grave
The island in the pool is locally known as Giant’s Grave, it is thought after the giant Gogmagog, which legend says lived nearby, but the name may also have come from some Iron Age burials which were unearthed locally on Lime Kiln Hill, where the skeletons were unusually tall (Cherry Hinton Chronicle, 1854).
This ‘Giant’s Grave’ site is also locally known as ‘The Spring’ or ‘Springhead’ or ‘Robin Hood dip’, it is the source of Cherry Hinton Brook. It has been given to the local people as a public park since 1941.
