Cambridge 2000: Orchard Street: 3-13
Orchard Street was built by Charles Humfrey for workers and so the
cottages are small. The row originally had numbers 1 to 16 but in
the middle of the 19th century numbers 14 and 15 were demolished to
make way for Clarendon Street. Thus
has been left in isolation and as a result has been able to be
extended without ruining the composition. Meanwhile the rest of the
terrace has remained largely unmodified, at least at the front.
The curve of the road helps make the setting more pleasant.
