A Trip to Cambridge - 2nd April 1986

Long before Nosher actually worked in Cambridge came this first-ever trip to the city, courtesy of a lift with Anna, Phil's girlfriend, in her Austin 1100. Phil was studying at Trinity College, part of the University of Cambridge, and it was, if nothing else, a huge contrast to the (mostly) concrete campus of Nosher's "alma mater", Plymouth Polytechnic. This trip was during the Easter holidays and included some punting on the Cam, a blow-out feast at "Sweeney Todd's" restaurant (now known as Bella Italia or Newnham Mill by the Mill Pond on Newnham Road) and even an 8mm film night in Phil's digs.
