Potato crop on Upper Knarr Fen south of Thorney
This prime farmland was once part of a vast fen at the southern end of the Wash. Drainage of the Fens began in earnest when, in 1630, Francis Earl of Bedford and a number of investors, known as “Adventurers” because they “adventured” their money, commissioned a Dutchman, Cornelius Vermuyden to drain the Fens. Some areas of the drained land within the Fens still retain the name “Adventurers’ Fen”.
