Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Standing on what was one of the largest islands in the Cambridgeshire Fens, Ely has a rich and varied history. The Story of Ely takes an engaging look at this cathedral city from the earliest times to the modern day, recalling pivotal events and taking into account its unique architectural development and heritage. Illustrated with evocative images, the book brings to life Ely's history, from its annual fairs and the war years, to powerful bishops and famous residents. Well-known local historian Michael Rouse combines a lively tone with authoritative research to create a unique narrative on his beloved city and the people who have made it.
