Coe Fen, or Cow Fen, as it was originally designated, is a mere 500 metres from the city centre of Cambridge. This was once the commercial hub of the city where three watermills once stood. The land between the artificially raised banks of the River Cam which bisects the Fen was prone to flooding and was therefore only really suitable for grazing. The wall was, amazingly, built in 1501-2, and has been obviously repaired many times since, but it’s original intent was to prevent Peterhouse college from flooding. By the the 19th century the Fen was a mire and it was partly drained to avoid disease in the town. The land remains today as a natural space and is a sanctuary in the busy city. Here it is seen here with the fen covered in knee-high white cow parsley, and gives a great vantage point to the spires of Cambridge, with Kings College Chapel in the background and Peterhouse College in the foreground.
