Deputy Mayor Councillor Michael Rouse’s ‘Secret Ely’ explores the little-known and often colourful history of the cathedral city of Ely through a fascinating selection of stories, facts and photographs.

The paperback book, which costs £14.99 and is 96 pages long, will be published on November 15.

In the book Cllr Rouse explores the less well known episodes of Ely’s history from its beginnings as a collection of houses surrounding the mediaeval abbey and cathedral on an island in the Fens.

“With tales of remarkable characters, unusual events and tucked away historical buildings, Secret Ely will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of Ely, and to all those who wish to learn more about this fascinating and historical corner of Cambridgeshire and the Fens,” say publishers Amberley Books.

‘Secret Ely’ can be bought from www.amberley-books.com www.amazon.co.uk and is also available in Kindle, Kobo.
