Unfortunately this trip has been cancelled. Please e-mail Stephen (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to do it some time in the future.
Fenland's market towns are our often-neglected neighbours, but offer a wealth of interesting sights to the discerning postdoctoral visitor.
In this trip we will visit at least two such towns. First is March, whose famous church's fabulously ornate carved ceiling was described by poet John Betjeman as "worth cycling 40 miles in a head wind to see". (We will be taking the train.) We will then continue by bus to Wisbech, known for its unspoiled Georgian architecture frequently used in period films, and stop for tea at Peckover House, a Georgian house and gardens once owned by a Quaker banking family, now belonging to the National Trust.
The end of the day will feature an ad-lib finale, possibly including a stop in Ely or possibly a third as-yet-undecided Fenland underdog.
It would be helpful if you could sign up using the Google Form, although feel free just to turn up. Meet at Cambridge railway station at 10.15am (outside the main entrance; hopefully a PdOC sign will be visible).
