Bodgers Farm is on Marshland Fen in West Norfolk, the area
immediately to the south of The Wash bounded by the rivers Nene and Great Ouse.
The Farm is a couple of miles to the west of the Great Ouse on its course
between Downham Market and the estuary just north of Kings Lynn. Marshland Fen
is on the eastern edge of the Fens which stretch from Huntingdon in the south,
to Peterborough in the west, and way up into Lincolnshire in the north – the
land of the big skies.
The Fen was the great common used for many centuries by the 'seven towns'; Emneth, Walsoken, Walton, Walpole, Terrington, Tilney and Clenchwarton, as summer grazing. In 1796 landowners in the seven towns successfully applied for an Act to enclose the Fen - some 8,000 acres in all. Apart from updated land drainage systems little has changed since then and the area is a mixture of rich agricultural land and wetland habitat for wildlife. Visit the Bed and Breakfast page to read more about local places of interest and our Fenland bird life.
