CAMBRIDGESHIREWhen the name Cambridge is mentioned the word 'university' springs to mind, yet the county itself has much more to offer than the mere academic portals of its county town, lovely though they are.
During WWII Duxford Airfield played a major role in Battle of Britain. Today its Aircraft Museum has a collection of historic aircraft of international status.
At Ely there's a house where Oliver Cromwell once lived, while Ely Cathedral has some fine vaulted ceilings and stained glass windows.
Outside Cambridge is 18th century Wimpole Hall, owned by the National Trust. Near Peterborough is the 14th century fortified manor house of Longthorpe Tower.
