Histon Road is a 0.6 hectare geological Site of Special Scientific Interest in Cambridge. It is a Geological Conservation Review site.

This is described by Natural England as a "key Pleistocene stratigraphic site". It is one only two sites in East Anglia which has an almost complete sequence of the second half of the warm Eemian interglacial, around 120,000 years ago. There are many deposits of molluscs and pollen.

The site has been filled in and is now allotments. There is no public access.
