Moving to Ely?
Ely is a historic Cathedral situated on the edge of a vast area of Cambridgeshire
fenland. Called Ely, due to the numbers of eels which were to be found in the marshy
local lowlands; the monks of the town were said to have paid their 11th Century
taxes using eels as a form of currency! The foundations of the city lie in the foundation
of an abbey there in around 673 AD. This abbey however was destroyed by Danish invaders
in around 870 and it was to take another 100 or so years until a replacement building
was to be put in place, in the current location. The cathedral of Ely, nicknamed
‘The Ship of the Fens’ due to the impressive view it offers from the surrounding
countryside, was completed in 1351 as the man diocese in Cambridgeshire given that
Cambridge itself has no cathedral of its own.
Ely is quite well connected too, given that by road the A10 to Kings Lynn runs very
close-by, as well as the main A14 which gives access to the Midlands and beyond.
Local roads offer easy access to pleasant local towns such as Newmarket; headquarters
of horseracing and of course Cambridge itself. By rail, Ely is a stop on the mainline
between London and Cambridge, and there are regular services as you’d expect on
such a busy commuter service.
Located on the Great River Ouse; Ely used to be an island actually until during
the 18th century it was to become quite an important port after the surrounding
fenland were drained to facilitate this. That is no longer the case however and
nowadays Ely has a large pleasure boating influence with several delightful marinas.
The University of Cambridge boat club has a hut here and in actual fact the 1944
renewal of the annual University Boat Race took place on the Great Ouse; the only
occasion it has not taken place on the Thames ( Oxford won..) The city also retains
much of its old world charm with most of the shopping streets being narrow, cobbled
affairs located reasonably close to the Cathedral itself. Like many towns of this
kind, there is a local market held in the main square every Thursday and Saturday,
offering fresh fruit and vegetables as well as meat and poultry from the surrounding
Ely, apart from being a market town for the local farming community also has significance
as being a popular tourist destination, with many coming each year to see its magnificent
cathedral which is by far one of the more impressive in the country. For that reason,
and also its pleasant location in the Cambridgeshire countryside, Ely is a delightful
little cathedral town within easy reach of bigger centres like Cambridge, not to
mention good and regular access to London by train.
