The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey

A family-friendly museum located in a beautiful, rural setting just off the A10 between Cambridge and Ely, The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey, a former Benedictine monastery, tells an 850-year story of farming, communities and life in the Cambridgeshire fens. The open-air museum interprets stories of village and farming life in Cambridgeshire from Victorian times to the late 20th Century. Denny Abbey, a scheduled ancient monument, dates back to 1159 and its fascinating history is visible in the exposed stone pillars, arches and roof timbers.
