Holme Fen

Sunday 30 August 2015. There were 14 walkers on today’s 7.4 mile wander around Holme Fen. With a unintentionally late start of 10:30, we hadn’t been walking for more than 10 minutes before a brief shower made most of us don our waterproof coats. Thankfully, this didn’t last too long and had almost stopped in time for our coffee break at 11:15.

The route took us to most parts of the nature reserve including a stop at the Holme Fen posts which are said to be 9ft below sea level. More meandering took us into Jackson’s Covert and a lunch stop beside Bosotn’s Mere.

We had been lucky with the weather up until now but the last mile or so was done in steadily increasing rain which brought out a flurry of umbrellas.

The first 3 pictures were taken on my winter recce which perhaps show the fen at its best whereas the last 4 were taken today which was totally lacking in sunshine.
