In the Wash
By local author Diane Calton Smith.
‘In The Wash’ is a Fenland History set in the time of King John. The loss of his baggage train in the Wash in 1216 has become interwoven with local legend and we have no way of knowing any more what really happened. There are too many theories and there is too little evidence.

We decided to add the book to the map as a nod to the river being a part of the town, but also a part of the wider history of the area. The river Nene goes out to the Wash.
