Round Church

The Round, Cambridge
The church of Holy Sepulchre, also known as "The Round Church" or just "The Round" in Cambridge was built around 1130AD.  It is one of very few round churches in England.  It was used as a church until just a few years ago, although now it is a visitor centre. The Round is one of the oldest buildings in the city.

When I first lived in Cambridge I used to go to services at "The Round" quite often, and was warmly welcomed although it was rather too evangelical for me really.  The congregations got too big, so they moved to a bigger church in the city, long after we had moved out of Cambridge. For many years in the early 1970s the church hall across the road was used for overflow.

The Round Church is located right next to the Cambridge University debating chamber. There are lots of places to eat on Bridge Street nearby.
