Fen Skating Association


Ice skating, or Fen skating has been a big part of the tradition of the Fenland area of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire. Fen skating only happens when a series of weather conditions coincide to create large areas of natural ice, on open fields, flooded fields and meadows.

We need three things to happen for Fen Skating to be possible:-
1st We need water.

2nd We need frost.

3rd We need no wind or snow

The best advice is to keep off any ice, if there is no one else there, do not go onto any ice that is covered with snow, even if you walked on it the day before, as you cannot see if the ice has thawed from below the snow.
Keep safe, keep warm and keep dry!!

If any ice becomes available for skating, this website will be updated to let you know where it is safe to skate.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
