#FocusFriday Wimblington

Updated: Oct 27, 2023

Regularly mentioned in various “Best Village” contests, Wimblington was also 2nd in a national “Village of the Year” competition in 1997. . Part of the appeal is the good balance of surrounding countryside and local village shops, whilst being situated just a short drive from bigger centres such as March and Ely.

The local area has a rich history, illustrated by the Stonea Camp. Sitting just outside Wimblington, Stonea Camp is an Iron Age Fort that was an important settlement in Roman and medieval times, and it provides some fascinating context for the history of the area. Visitors can find out plenty - such as how it holds the title of the lowest hill fort in Britain!

You will find a bustling crowd 7 days a week if you pop along to Skylark Garden Centre. It is a firm favourite with locals for the Fenland breakfast made from locally sourced ingredients. During the summer months it is a popular attraction with its maize maze providing 3km of twists and turns and a range of other fun family activities as well. As well as all your garden needs, they also have a craft shop on site.

Wimblington used to be home to 10 different pubs and inns; although The Anchor Inn is the sole survivor, it takes great pride in its role as a community hub. During the height of the pandemic it operated as a free shop as well as delivering discounted meals to residents in need. They have an extensive menu and also offer a delivery service.

If you are thinking of moving to the area, or indeed, you are a Wimblington resident with a property to sell, please get in touch for an informal chat.
