"The other day I sat on a Fenland road for three hours in the fog. I didn’t see a single car; not a single human being. That’s what I love about the Fens: the emptiness. It’s getting harder and harder in Britain – especially in the southern half of England – to be alone in the landscape; you can be alone in the Fens. " Fred Ingrams, The Lie of the Land, Cambridge Magazine.
