Wicken Fen Vision - guided walk for Lottery players

We'd like to say a big thank you to National Lottery players by offering a free guided walk to find out more about the natural heritage of Wicken Fen.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

Join one of our knowledgeable walk leaders for insights into what makes Wicken Fen so special, and the difference that the Wicken Fen Vision will make for wildlife and people.

The walk leader will make stops along the way to point out natural highlights and summer wildlife.

The walk is approximately 2 - 2.5 miles and will take 1 - 1.5 hours at a relaxed pace. Your knowledgeable guide will take you alongside the Wicken and Monk's Lode waterways, before taking a slightly elevated path across the waterproof bank looking over Baker's and Adventurers' Fens.

This walk is part of our community engagement project: Footprints, made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
