CAMBRIDGE AND ELY. ENGLAND

Also Newmarket.

Cambridge and Ely are in the county of Cambridgeshire, and Newmarket is in the
county of Suffolk. I stayed 2 nights in Cambridge , so as to visit all three. -- To me Cambridge
was know as the University city, Ely known as the home of Oliver Cromwell, and
Newmarket the home of Horse Racing . This proved correct. ---------- ELY is on the Great
Ouse and Ouse rivers. The cathedral is unusual with its 14th century octagonal lantern
tower. It can be seen for miles around in the flat countryside. Near the cathedral are lovely Jubilee Gardens that
commemorate the jubilee of Queen Elizabeth 2 . Here is a sculpture of an eel, that Ely
is famous for.-------CAMBRIDGE,  ENGLAND.  --  I stayed  2  nights  at  Railway  Lodge Guest  house.,  Tenison  road. --  Very  good.
