  • Wicken Windpump

    Standing sentinel over Sedge Fen, the Wicken windpump is a reminder of how man once earned a living - harvesting natural products from the fen.

    Originally used in spring and summer to drain peat diggings, today it's believed to be the last working wooden windpump in the Fen's.

  • Fen Cottage

    Duck your head as you step inside historic Fen Cottage, with its low beams and uneven floors.

    Built in the 18th century, the cottage is the last surviving building from the once thriving hamlet known as 'The Lode' whose inhabitants lived and earnt their living on the fen.
