Stinkpipe 63 in Hauxton Road
Stinkpipe 63 in Hauxton Road
The most southerly stench pole in Cambridge still exudes its olfactory welcome to travellers entering the city by the main road from London and the south, just north of the bridge built by the London & North-Western Railway which now carries the A1309 over the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway.

The pipe, alongside a telephone distribution pole, remains intact with its ornate base and corona cap and the paintwork has not weathered too badly since Sandy photographed it in 2008 TL4454 : Housing on the Hauxton Road.
