People in the Landscape: the Fens

A half-day investigating the stories of our local history with writer-in-residence Guinevere Glasfurd. The second of 3 writing workshops this spring.

  • Booking essential

Who are the people who have made the Fens into the landscape we see today? Using a variety of archival materials, we will explore how the Fens have changed over the past two hundred years and the stories that come out of it. We'll look specifically at the history of Wicken Fen as well as the Bedford Level Commissioners, who drained large tracts of land in the area.
