Holme Fen


Explore the finest silver birch woodland in England and visit the famous Holme Post where you will be 2.75 metres (9.0 ft) below sea level - the lowest land point in Great Britain.

If you had visited Holme Fen a few hundred years ago, you would have had a view of the largest lake in southern England - Whittlesea Mere. An impressive three miles across, it was a place for ice skating, sailing and home to many species of wildlife found nowhere else. Some of these species, including the large copper butterfly, became extinct when the mere was drained to create farmland in the 1850s.
