Wandering at Wicken Fen

Wicken FenA perfect day to go out for a walk with Jean along the Adventurers’ Trail at Wicken Fen, near Ely for those who don’t know it, and a rare survival/recreation of the old fen landscape. Mercifully, dry paths are provided (the webbed feet haven’t grown back properly yet after my Suffolk excursion), and the whole thing is expertly managed and presented by the National Trust.

It was great too to bump into Hilary and Matthew Lavis, allegedly on a group “power walk”, and catch up on new about old friends. Perfick.

  1. I went down there for a school botany trip as a sixth former in Derby and stayed in Willie Lotts cottage. Happy memories!
