Excerpt from On the Superficial Deposits Under Cambridge, and Their Influence Upon the Distribution of the Colleges

If we extend our enquiries we find further evidence Of the subsidence Of the area in (geologically speaking) recent times. When sinking for water at Impington Park Mr Macfarlane Grieve found in one place Boulder Clay, with a gravelly bed at its base, to a depth of 88 feet 6 inches, and at Sutton Bridge, north Of Wisbech, marine alluvium was proved to a depth of 65 feet resting upon Boulder Clay. Widespread depressions since glacial times are shown, according to the Observations of Prestwich, Whitaker, and others, by deep troughs of Boulder Clay in many parts of East Anglia. It is clear, therefore, that there has been a subsidence affecting the level of the river at Cambridge which has been going on since the glacial age, has been continued to the time Of the deposi tion Of the river-silt at the Backs Of the colleges, and may be going on still.

For various reasons, therefore, the actual height Of the ground above CD. Is not Of great importance in our present enquiry, but the relative height Of different portions of it and the fall towards the river, does help us to detect what were in Old times the waterlogged areas, and the districts unsuitable for houses.

The height about the railway station is over 50 feet above o.d. This drops to 45 feet at the south-east end Of Parker's Piece, and to 42 feet on the opposite side by Park Terrace. From 47 feet in Brooklands Avenue it falls to 41 feet near Brookside, a level maintained on either side of Downing Grounds to near Downing Street, where it has fallen to 37 feet.
