Where you'll be

We will meet in the historic City of Ely on the river front outside the Cutter Inn and take a short riverside walk upstream along the River Great Ouse to my floating studio. You will have the chance to paint with a view over Middle Fen which has a wildlife status that is home to protected species of plants and birds. In a typical day Herons and Kingfishers are active along the river.
