The Fens
THE FENS, also known as the FENLAND(S), is a naturally marshy region in eastern England. Most of the fens were drained several centuries ago, resulting in a flat, dry, low-lying agricultural region supported by a system of drainage channels and man-made rivers (dykes and drains) and automated pumping stations. A fen is the local term for an individual area of marshland or former marshland and also designates the type of marsh typical of the area, which has neutral or alkaline water chemistry and relatively large quantities of dissolved minerals , but few other plant nutrients . Fenland primarily lies around the coast of the Wash ; it reaches into four ceremonial counties : Lincolnshire
