Bridge Street, Cambridge
Bridge Street is a historic street in the north of central Cambridge, England. It runs between Magdalene Street at the junction with Thompson's Lane to the northwest and Sidney Street at the junction with Jesus Lane to the southeast. Bridge Street used to continue across a bridge over the River Cam, hence the name, but this part is now known as Magdalene Street after Magdalene College, which fronts onto the street.
The Holy Sepulchre, commonly known as The Round Church, is a Norman church on the corner of Bridge Street and Round Church Street, opposite St John's Street. It was built around 1130, inspired by the original church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Another church, St Clement's Church, is on the corner with Thompson's Lane.
