Woodwalton Fen

Cambs Open Space

Woodwalton Fen is owned by the Wildlife Trust and is managed by Natural England and is one of only four remaining fragments of the ancient wild fens that once stretched for 1,350 square miles across the area and is a last haven for many rare fen species.

This beautiful reserve is internationally important for wildlife and provides a refuge for thousands of species of fen animals and plants, many of which are found nowhere else in the country. It is a National Nature Reserve, a Ramsar site, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC).

Explore peaceful paths through the reeds while listening to the calls of birds, watch dragonflies dart along the water's edge and discover the Rothschild Bungalow. The reserve is a paradise for nature lovers, photographers and a window into a lost world.
