Fulbourn, Cambridgeshire: house numbering #3

Posted by davidearl on 12 October 2009 in English (English)

85% of houses now numbered in Fulbourn, this time the eastern edge of the village, one more little local excursion should finish it. For my record, remaining bit is south: Cambridge Road, Shelford Road, Huntsmill; what streets are still left in the construction site off Cambridge Road; and School Lane, Ludlow Lane and also check corner of Home End/Ludlow Lane.

Fulbourn was one of the first places I surveyed, more than three years ago, and this re-survey reveals quite how much detail I didn't include when staring out that I would now collect. Also another two whole new streets gone up recently found and a cemetery discovered that I didn't know was there. The Fulbourn Centre (community centre) and recreation ground had virtually no detail before.

Also, someone doggedly shifted lots of streets in Fulbourn about six months ago to match the Yahoo images. This re-survey with a different GPS confirms the GPS was right (they match) and the shape of the streets had been altered incorrectly, so I was able to make some corrections there, St Vigors Road was especially bad. Also the satellite images are now rather out of date for the development that has happened recently.

Yes, people need to check the alignment of yahoo imagery against known GPS points before shifting existing roads etc.
