Nature tamed? The Fenland landscape since 1600

12 September 2020, 11:00 - 12:00

Landscape, river running through the middle of grassland with tress at the sides.

As part of Open Cambridge we are pleased to support a talk by Tony Kirby, Cambridgeshire Association for Local History, when he explores how successive generations have approached the problems of Fen Drainage. Tony looks at how their solutions have shaped the landscape and how nature has had a habit of getting its own back on their aspirations.

As part of the Open Cambridge programme Mill Road History Society presents a virtual tour of Covent Garden, the oldest side street off Mill Road. Formerly home to a nursery garden and sausage factory, it is still home to the Six Bells pub, there since at least 1838, and now also the ARU Drama Studio.
