Major development on the old cement works site off Coldham’s Lane is about to start. In preparation, this diversion to the Tins path is being constructed around the site. This temporary path has been built to a very high standard for width and smoothness, much better than the existing path, and much better than many permanent paths around Cambridge. It is not intended to last, so does not have permanent foundations. It’s worth a ride, just to look at the railway industrial archaeology it cuts through at one end.
