ST. IVES MARKET AND ISLE OF ELY
10th August 2020
Outward along the Great North Road, stopping for coffee at the Willington Garden Centre and on to the attractive town of St Ives to enjoy the large Monday Market. The town is attractively situated on the banks of the Great River Ouse which is crossed by an unusual 14th-century bridge, still retaining its original bridge chapel. After lunch we drive to Ely whose cathedral is regarded as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Fens, its outstanding feature being the unusual ‘Octagon’ built to replace the Norman Tower which collapsed in 1322. The nave’s painted ceiling and magnificent Lady Chapel are also noteworthy. Home by approximately 7.30pm.
