Royal visits and long-serving farmhands - a nostalgic step back in time
- Credit: MIKE PETTY
Royal visits feature heavily in our look back at Fenland history with Mike Petty reminding us of two memorable occasions in Ely and Burwell.
We also look back at a salvage theft in the late 1940s, a water supply objection and 'world's fattest girl' at Midsummer Fair in the late 1920s.
