The village of Willingham is situated in Cambridgeshire on the edge of the famous Fens, and it is this that makes it an attractive place for those wishing to explore the area.
Although not a busy place by any means, Willingham can offer a selection of very good guest houses that are more than happy to accommodate visitors and is a very convenient place to stay for access to the surrounding areas and the city of Cambridge which lies just twelve miles away, and the quiet and quaint ambience of the village lends itself to those looking for a more relaxing place to visit.
Just outside of the village, to the North, it is easy to see one of the famous Fens roads, an elevated passage across the Fens themselves that is characteristic of the area, and the historical records of the village show that there has been a settlement here for at least 1000 years.
Farmland Museum & Denny Abbey, Waterbeach, Cambridge CB25 9PQ (01223) 860988
Located five miles from Willingham, the Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey is a fascinating historical site on the doorstep of Cambridge.
Started by a four year-old boy in 1969 (really!), his once humble collection of broken pieces of crockery has grown into 8,000 objects which are now housed in an ancient Benedictine Abbey.
