the Old Clock House, a 2 storey square brick building, initially a 17th Century lock-up, there is a smaller example surviving in the village of Needingworth, across the river. In the upper floor is a clock, the octagonal face showing to the north down the High Street, came from Conington Castle which was demolished in the 1950s. The roof is laid with slate, topped by a timber cupola with round arches, inside is a bell cast by Thomas Norris in 1660. It was restored in 1989 and is now a Grade II listed building. Over the years its function has changed, once the site where market taxes where collected, it has also been a garage for the old fire engine, had a bus shelter built on to one side, no

This is probably the trendy club to go to in Cambridge, because they have people that can actually DJ there, rather than people just doing a playlist from their computer! The decor is really cool - kind of Moroccan Bazaar themed. There are lots of little nooks and crannys to chat to people too. They have varied guest DJs - dancehall, DnB, etc, which is such a refreshing change and brings a little bit of the London scene to Cambridge. The cocktails are good too..
