WISBECH Wisbech is an attractive and historic market town commonly known as the Capital of the Fens. 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. In addition, there are coaches which run from Harecroft Road to Spalding Grammar School for Boys and Spalding High School for Girls, both outstanding non-fee paying Senior Schools with both offering Sixth Form Education. The town is only 20 minutes from King's Lynn with its direct rail link to Kings Cross via Cambridge approx. 1 hour 40 minutes. Peterborough is 35 minutes away with its national rail links. 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.
