Two little structures sit in a field of beans (or peas) on the edge of Cambridge. Hides for shooters protecting the crop from the hungry pigeons. ‘Hide’, the perfect use of a verb as a noun; in America a ‘blind’, which is not quite so obvious. No guns this day; skylarks sing overhead and a dozen pigeons peck greedily at the soft green shoots.
Beyond the hides, fields and hedges, the new Cambridge of the Biomedical Campus grows year on year. ‘The Cambridge Biomedical Campus, located at the southern end of Hills Road on the southern edge of Cambridge, England, is one of the largest centres of health science and medical research in the world and the largest such centre in Europe.’ (Wikipedia)
