Ridge of high ground near Burwell
Ridge of high ground near Burwell
'High' is very much a relative term here in the Fens - we are only about 10 metres above sea level, but the contrast is still very apparent between this chalky ridge and the surrounding flat fenland. The village of Burwell is built on the same ridge, which extends northwards out of the more undulating country around Newmarket. Before the Fens were drained this would have been one of the last outposts of solid ground before the peat bogs.
