Mitcham's Corner is gyratory system in Cambridge. The junction is named after Charles Mitcham, who owned a draper’s shop on the corner of Chesterton Road and Victoria Avenue from the early-to-mid 20th century. In 1967, the layout of the roads was altered to allow traffic to flow as a gyratory system - which, along with the surrounding shops and houses is known as Mitcham's Corner.

The link below to the development framework, published in January 2017, contains a more extensive history of the junction featuring photographs and other material of historical interest.
