There is no straight line dividing the fen from the uplands. Small upland peninsulas run into the fens and conversely the fen creeps into the uplands, as if both have vied for their common rights against evolution.

Most of the fen-edge settlements relied on their own individual fens for their very survival. Villagers having grazing rights on common pastures in the fens up until they are enclosed and drained in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

His journey also follows the route of the Roman Car Dyke from Peterborough to Lincoln, visiting the villages and towns on the way.

Few of the travel writers from the past have written on these areas, but where they have Rex retraces their journeys, recalling their comments and adding what he sees today.

His family have lived and farmed on the fens since the 17th century, and his passion for this part of England shines through in this book.
