The Fens

The Fens or Fenlands in Cambridgeshire are a marshy region in low lying agricultural lands. A Fen refers to the marshland which is predominently found around the Wash but stretches out into Lincolnshire and Norfolk.

Much of the Fenland is just above sea level and although a lot of the land has been drained they can be prone to flooding. In order to protect drained land you will see drainage banks around much of the agricultural land.
