Highways and Byways in Cambridge and Ely
by the Rev. Edward Conybeare,
with Illustrations by Frederick L Griggs

One of a series of travel guide books that were published in the first decades of the 20th century, each dealing with areas or counties of England.

From the preface:
The Highways of Cambridgeshire and the Isle of Ely are usually regarded as unattractive compared with those of
England in general. Nor is this criticism wholly unfair. The county does lack the features which most make for picturesque rural scenery. There are no high hills, little even of undulation, and, what is yet more fatal, a sad sparsity of timber. The Highways, then, seem to the traveller merely stretches of ground to be got over as speedily as may be, and he rejoices that their flatness lends itself so well to this end. It is however far otherwise with the Byways. These abound with picturesque nooks and corners. In every village charming features are to be found, thatched and timbered cottages, hedgerow elms, bright willow-shaded watercourses, old-time village greens, and, above all, old-time village churches, often noble, and never without artistic and historical interest of high order. Few counties better repay exploration than Cambridgeshire".
