Crowland is an ancient town set on the banks of the Welland River, in the county of Lincolnshire, which is home to just over three thousand six hundred people. It nudges the borders of Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire and has a fascinating history which dates back many centuries. A group of monks founded an Abbey here in the 870, although it was later sacked by Marauding Danes, and suffered a fire, but was later re-built. Today visitors can still see the skeletal ruins of the Abbey which was dissolved by Henry VIII during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 16th Century; the poignant ruins surround the beautiful surviving church. There is a good range of shops in the town centre, together with a tea shop, restaurants, and a choice of pubs offering a warm welcome. The impressive structure of the Trinity Bridge forges a link with the past as it was built by the Benedictine Monks in the 14th Century; it once spanned the River Welland where Henry VI and Edward IV set sail from in the 15th Century. Walkers and cyclists can enjoy the surrounding dramatic Fenland Countryside, and as it is just ten miles or so from the busy cathedral city of Peterborough it is ideally placed
