21 Feb 2009, Fen Run 2: Fish and Duck Pub   3 comments

From the Stretham Engine to the Fish and Duck Pub is another 1.6 miles on this run:

You follow a pedestrian right-of-way along the River Great Ouse and through farmland.

Eventually, you find your way to the mooring for a large number of house boats out in the middle of nowhere.  This is pretty cool, or it would be if the pub was open (you can see it to the left of the bridge in the distance):

The Fish and Duck apparently has some structural problems that are keeping it under construction for a wee bit longer.  Pity, I had planned on a half pint before returning to the Engine then continuing onto the Lazy Otter to have a drink with Jamie.

  2. I’ve been looking for a photograph of the Fish & Duck to use in an article for a College Magazine about a trip out there in 1960. Would you give me permission to use yours, duly credited, of course.
