Pauline's Swamp is located in Burwell and parish records of the swamp date back to around 1805.

It came into the possession of the Hawes family in 1992 and was then looked after by Paul Hawes, who donated it in a 'deed of trust' to Burwell Parish Council in 2007 in memory of his wife.

A photography competition is held each year to tie in with the swamp's annual autumn activity and open day, which took place in September.
