Collection: Thorney Society – Publications

The Earls of Bedford started to take a major interest in their lands at Thorney in the early part of the of the 17th Century. This was linked with an influx of Walloon settlers. Some had been driven off their lands in Sandtoft, further North in England, in 1628. Other workers had come from Holland to work on the drainage of the Fens.

The Thorney Society has charted the history of this Fenland village and created a wonderful selection of historic documents,  artefacts and publications for people to enjoy.
