A new place to call home
Eddington is named after the renowned astronomer, mathematician and physicist Sir Arthur Eddington. His observations confirmed some key predictions of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and led to its general acceptance; he was also a Cambridge alumnus and resident in the local area in the early part of the twentieth century.
In addition to providing new homes, this contemporary urban neighbourhood, just two miles by bike from Cambridge’s city centre, has been beautifully and innovatively designed and inspired by the architecture of the city. Eddington has been carefully considered as a community where people come first, and where the essential components of a balanced neighbourhood come together.
