TF1323 : Subsidence on Morton Fen

taken 6 years ago, 3 km from Dyke, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

Subsidence on Morton Fen
Subsidence on Morton Fen
Each of the villages between Bourne and Heckington, a distance of some 15 miles, almost without exception has a road leading out onto the fen named after its village and terminating at the South Forty Foot Drain. Morton is the next village but one north of Bourne (after Dyke) and has two roads heading out on to Morton Fen and stopping at the South Forty Foot Drain. Morton Drove is the southern of these two roads and this is about half way along. The familiar Fenland problem of subsidence because of shrinkage of the underlying peat can be readily seen in the state of this building next to Morton Drove.
