Cherry Hinton used to consist of two separate settlements called Church End and Mill End. Church End developed on the higher ground to the north close to a spring line, which provided fresh water. It was also close to the fen edge, which could be used for supplies such as fish, wildfowl, thatch and fuel. Mill End developed in the south around the large natural spring pool, known locally as Giant’s Grave, providing an excellent supply of fresh water. It was situated at the foot of the Gog Magog Hills, which provided upland pasture for livestock and great defensive views.ragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.
