TL4360 : Hoadly Snicket

taken 4 months ago, near to Histon, Cambridgeshire, Great Britain

Hoadly Snicket
Hoadly Snicket
A segregated ginnel or snicket (pedestrians on the left, cyclists to the right) linking the south end of Hoadly Road to Windsor Road and providing a useful short cut to the shops and facilities in Histon Road for residents of this group of residential roads named after former members of St Catharine's College. Unlike Robert Woodlark, John Eachard and Thomas Sherlock, Benjamin Hoadly (1676-1761) never became Master of his college but was famed as a prelate and controversialist. He was successively Bishop of Bangor, Hereford, Salisbury and Winchester but rarely visited his various dioceses, preferring to reside in London and indulge in his hobby of controversy.

The sight screen at the right belongs to Fitzwilliam College's cricket ground. It may be seen in use in John Sutton's photograph of TL4360 : Cricket at Fitz.
