A Day Worth Recording

By Cheeseminer


Having spent yesterday out, today had to be the 'admin' day with a mix of treasurer, chairman and landlord in-trays to deal with. Hence we didn't get to Meeting.

By early afternoon it was getting sufficiently irritating being stuck at the PC with sunny weather outside that I readily picked up on S's question of where we were walking to, and suggested Nine Wells.

Nine Wells is a collection of springs south of Cambridge. One brainchild of Mr Hobson (of "Hobson's Choice" fame) was to channel water from these springs into the centre of Cambridge along what is still known as Hobson's Conduit. Many, if not most people thing the channels along Trumpington Street are drains; no, that's the incoming water supply, channelled all the way from here.
