WISBECH Wisbech is an attractive and historic market town commonly known as the Capital of the Fens. Near the bridge is a monument to Thomas Clarkson, an active opponent of the slave trade. Also of interest are the two market places and the parish church of St Peter and St Paul, which has a fine 16th century tower. The Norman Castle has long since disappeared, but there is a house built from its stone by Thomas Thurloe, Cromwell's Secretary of State. Adjoining it is a great museum, one of the oldest in the country, which counts among its treasures the original manuscript of 'Great Expectations' by Charles Dickens. In the area there is very good walking and cycling, farm shops nearby, theatre - amateur and professional, a swimming pool, library, good schools- including the highly thought of Wisbech Grammar School, and a Salvation Army hall. Also nearby is the Peckover House & Garden which is a National Trust property located in North Brink. Peckover House was built in 1722 and is a classic Georgian merchant's town house, it was lived in by the Peckover family for 150 years. In addition, there is the Octavia Hill Birthplace Museum which is located on Wisbech's South Brink. Octavia Hill is a co-founder of The National Trust, and as a Grade II* listed building, Octavia Hill Birthplace Museum is particularly important as a building of outstanding architectural and historic interest. March railway station is 15 minutes away with direct services to Cambridge, Stansted Airport, Birmingham and Liverpool. Cambridge is approx. 30 minutes by rail from March. Wisbech is only 20 minutes from King's Lynn with its direct rail link to Kings Cross via Cambridge of approx. 1 hour 40 minutes. Peterborough is 35 minutes away with its national links to London, the North and Scotland.
