This roundabout is large and irregular in shape - the middle contains a small grassed area, some houses, and Cambridge's Staples Office Superstore. It does not have any degree of CambridgeAura about it.
The shop itself is primarily noted for being too far away to be useful, charging above the odds, and not having what you actually want anyway.
in fact, despite proof positive to the opposite, many students refuse to admit its existence, as it is simply too far away from the centre of their universe (MarketSquare). Therefore, it seems to exist in a strange form of reality, neither here nor there.... --Tsunami (who cycles across it several times/week, and therefore must at some point also exist in said strange form of reality)
This area of Cambridge does have two uses:
Firstly, it is the source of several comments in the (semi famous) quotes file.
Secondly, it appears to be a magnet for those who have technically departed from their StudentLife but who are unable to completely escape Cambridge itself.
An important additional use is that it bars the way to BoatieLand
It's a place that seems to be halfway to most places.
