New Cases in Room 5

Two sides of Room 5 have now been fitted out with a sweep of new display cases thanks to the generosity of the Burnthouse Farm Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund.

These cases will display items relating to traditional ways of living off the fens, the draining of Whittlesea Mere in 1851 and loosely cover the period from Victorian Whittlesey up until the start of WW1.

The cases form part of an overall redisplay to produce a local history timeline across Rooms 5 and 6.
