FRIENDS OF CHERRY HINTON BROOK
Cherry Hinton Brook flows through the eastern suburbs of the City of Cambridge, UK. It rises near the nature reserves on Lime Kiln Hill and flows north-west through Coldhams Common to the River Cam. Kingfishers are commonly seen, symbolising the special nature of this pleasant green corridor.
The Brook and its adjacent footpaths link the people and wildlife of Cherry Hinton to Cambridge City, Coldhams Common and the River Cam. Snakey Path, which runs alongside the Brook from Daws Lane to Burnside, and on to Sainsbury’s supermarket, is a very busy route for walkers and cyclists.
Friends of Cherry Hinton Brook are a group of mainly local residents who banded together in June 2009, initially triggered by the need to clear the rubbish from the Brook and its environs, particularly between Cherry Hinton Hall and Sainsbury’s.
