The Fen View Museum is the first ‘micro museum’ on the Fen Edge Trail, an exploration of the ‘edge’ of the fenland in Cambridgeshire.
The Fen Edge Trail is a walking route around the Cambridgeshire Fens, roughly following the land that lies 5 metres above sea level (the 5 metre contour), where the low-lying fenland meets the surrounding higher land.
With short detours to visit nearby viewpoints, historical and cultural sites and areas good for wildlife, the Trail enables you to enjoy this fascinating area that has been of strategic importance for the local inhabitants since their first arrival. As well as exploring the landscapes of the Fens, you will discover the rocks that lie underneath and those that form the surrounding ‘highlands’, as well as finding out about the life that existed when they were formed, and how the past and current landscapes have affected fenland life.
Partners include the Cambridgeshire Geological Society, Wildlife Trust, Fenland Trust and the Great Fen. Supporters include many groups aross the county and beyond. The trail is also supported by the Cambridgeshire Local Access Forum.
