The National Trust's oldest nature reserve and one of the last remaining fragments of undrained fenland which once covered the vast lowlands of Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk and Lincolnshire. Today the Fen is home to 9,175 recorded species
The raised boardwalks and lush grass droves allow easy access to a lost landscape of flowering meadows, sedge and reedbeds, where you can encounter rarities such as hen harriers, water voles and bitterns.
The National Trust has a Vision for Wicken Fen, an ambitious landscape-scale conservation project, which is opening up new areas of land to explore. New and diverse habitats are being created with the help of the grazing herds of Highland cattle and Konik ponies.
