History The last 50 years have seen the end of Great Shelford as a real village. It has become physically part of Cambridge. The population of 1534 in 1921 has rocketed up to over 4,000 and, to house the growing number of residents, more and more of the village and its environs has been developed for housing. In the 1920s and 30s houses crept gradually along the Cambridge Road to meet those coming south from Trumpington until a continuous ribbon was achieved.
