Fascinated by the Fens? Share your knowledge, meet field experts and talk to researchers.

Come to  a Community Day on Friday 29 March in Ely to find out about the Scottish Soldiers who helped make (another word for dig!) our drained landscape.  Not much is known about these men and this project aims to piece together this forgotten story from the 1650s.

If you have any information about this fascinating local history please come along and share your stories or bring anything that might tell about the draining of the Fens, Maps, Articles, Family Stories, Objects.
