The Lost Fens with Ian Rotherham in Ely

Thursday 18th July 2013

  • Venue Ely Library, 6 The Cloisters, Ely, CB7 4ZH
  • Doors open 7.10pm
  • Start time 7.30pm

Change of venue! This event is now being held in the Library. If you’ve already booked tickets, we’ll be in touch to confirm the change.

We are delighted to host a fascinating evening with the author of the tremendously popularĀ The Lost Fens, a book which has changed the way we think about our much-loved landscape. The loss of the great fenlands of East Anglia, Ian Rotherham believes, is one of the greatest ecological disasters. So much has been lost in their destruction, though their names are part of our history and the roads we drive around Ely every day. Join us to rediscover our lost heritage, and gain a new appreciation of our beautiful surroundings.
