The village of Upwell - once the southern terminus of the Wisbech & Upwell Tramway - is located on the edge of the Cambridgeshire Fens. It is traversed by Well Creek, the old course of the River Nene. Draining of the fens and their conversion into fertile agricultural land started in 1630 when the Dutch engineer Cornelius Vermuyden was employed by a group led by the Earl of Bedford. Despite all efforts, nature contrived to ensure that the drainage work should continue as the dry peat shrunk and further lowered the level of the land. Upwell merges with the adjoining village of Outwell, situated on the A1122 close to the Cambridgeshire border about 5 miles south of Wisbech. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
