Across the years from Fleam Dyke
A view from the sixth century to the twenty-first - from an Anglo-Saxon rampart towards wind turbines erected in 2012.

Fleam Dyke is a defensive earthwork built over a period of 150 years from the 5th to the 7th centuries, extending 5km across open chalk land from the edge of the (then undrained) fens at Fulbourn to forested land near Balsham. It is one of four similar earthworks in the area, the longest being the Devilís Dyke a few kilometres to the north.
