Twickenham, Middlesex, TW1 2JH
Cambridge House and its estate was established in the 17th Century and was the second largest in Twickenham until the 19th Century, when the estate was finally broken up. A number of large houses were built, set in extensive grounds; then during the 1860s there was some rapid expansion of residential homes, forming the neighbourhood that still exists today and is protected by a conservation order.
