Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The River Great Ouse and its tributaries, the Rivers Cam, Lark, Little Ouse and Wissey provide approximately 224km / 140 miles of navigable waterway. The upper reaches of this river flow through one of the most peaceful and unspoilt water environments in Britain. They offer a wide range of natural and historical sites and pretty rural towns to visit. The lower reaches take boaters through the characteristic Fenland landscape with a skyline dominated by Ely Cathedral. There are many sites of interest to visit along the river, including the Stretham Pump, Wicken Fen and the Pumping Engine museum at Prickwillow. The Ouse Washes is a site of special value to nature conservation and the Welney Wildfowl Trust is one of the best places to view wildfowl all year round.
