Rabbit island. A load of cobbles.
There is a roundabout by the 'Freedom Bridge' that is locally known as 'Rabbit island'.
No one is quite sure how the rabbits got there, but being surrounded by traffic on all sides something quite strange has happened.
It's a kind of Darwinian 'missing link' or evolution working on overtime. With no natural enemies (except the car) they can breed at will to fill their little eco-system. Half the populace seem to hate it, and demand the council shoot the lot of 'em. The other half bring them carrots.
The council responded by at least planting the area with plants that were thought to be 'rabbit unfreindly'. They presumbly hoped that in time the population would decrease. 'Rabbit unfreindly' is a phrase that seems to mean 'rocks'. I can't see much else on it.
Wisbech, capital of the Fens
Wisbech is quite off the beaten path we think... not too many tourists visit this place. The area is very un-English as it lacks the rolling countryside look. Best reason to visit Wisbech is probably the Fens, an area of tranquil waterways and wetlands that provide a haven for wildlife.
The nearest railway station is in March, which is on the Stansted Airport -Peterborough line.
