The Holme Fen Posts

Caption - The Holme Fen Posts. The information board provides a fascinating history of the posts and how the one on the right has recorded the reducing land level here for some 160 years. This fen is now between 2 and 4 metres below sea level and as the info board confirms, you are now at the lowest land in Britain.
