Wicken Fen, Past, Present and Future
Dr Peter Green will give an overview of the creation of the Fen and the various drainage schemes. He will then detail how Wicken was one of the few small areas to escape drainage thanks, in part, to the efforts of scientists from Cambridge. Once the National Trust was formed it bought part of Wicken Fen and was donated much more by these same Cambridge Scientists. The talk will then detail how the National Trust has maintained the Fen and the reasons for, and progress, of the Wicken Fen Vision, a 100 year project to ensure the long term preservation of this extremely important ecosystem.
