Hello My Name is Fonz Chamberlain and I've been interested in the history of Cambridge since I was young.

I was born in Mill Road and either lived in the city or one of the surrounding villages.

I enjoy sharing the history of Cambridge and appeared on different radio and TV stations across Cambridgeshire and beyond talking about it and produced articles, which have featured in newspapers and magazines.

In recent years I have also done a range of talks for groups, schools and libraries and been involved with walks in the city.

I think Cambridge has a wonderful history and I hope you enjoy this website.
