Whittlesea Mere was once the largest lake in England south of the Lake District, which was over 10 square kilometers in its heyday! Learn about the dramatic process of draining the mere which resulted in a loss of livelihood for many but also produced a region of “black gold” which began an agricultural boom in the area.

Learn about the Great Fen project and its plans to return this land to wetland from Louise Rackham from Great Fen tells us the fascinating story of the toils and tribulations of a lost landscape about to be reborn with an internationally-recognised 50-year restoration project to revive this huge area of wetland.

Tickets cost £3, £2 for concessions and Heritage Pass holders.
