Great Fen, Abbey College, Stories in Film, Heritage Lottery Fund
The fens have changed dramatically over the last decades.
Travel back to a time when bomber planes filled the skies and see archive footage of the extinct large copper butterfly. Explore these fascinating stories in text, photos, audio and film. A mixture of staff and volunteers from the Great Fen and Ramsey Rural Museum along with students from Abbey College worked together to gather and record stories from local people.
These stories recorded local peoples time growing up and living on the fens. Objects and photographs have also been donated by local people. The Great Fen team have used these stories and photographs to create booklets, a DVD and Audio CD.
These are all available for a donation from the Great Fen team.
Thank you to Heritage Lottery Fund and other funders of the Holmewood Estate Project for supporting this work.
