Tour of Flag Fen Archaeology Park

Flag Fen is home to an ancient wooden monument. A kilometre-long wooden causeway and platform are preserved in the wetland. 3,300 years ago, this was built and used by the Prehistoric fen people as a place of worship and ritual. 60,000 upright timbers and 250,000 horizontal planks are buried under the ground along with many swords and personal items given as offerings to the watery fen.

Members are encouraged to bring along partners to enjoy the Flag Fen Tour and fine refreshments.
