Impington Camel
Impington Camel
A sculpture by Histon resident Tony Hillier (1942-2014), one of a series he originally created for the front garden of his home in the village TL4464 : Tony Hillier's sculpture garden and now on display at various locations around Histon and Impington with the support of Tony's wife Joan. A number of his other works have been donated to schools and colleges in the area. Passers-by are welcome to chalk graffiti on the beast, but are warned that if they climb on the structure it is at their own risk.

The Camel now stands beside the B1049 Bridge Road to greet travellers entering the village from Junction 32 on the A14. Despite the proximity of the main road, badgers have been noted frequenting the nearby woodland. The houses in the background are in the road called The Coppice in TL4462.
B1049 Road

The B1049 runs 11 miles from Cambridge to Wilburton.
