A very brief view of Ely
One of my fav places
A brief visit to Ely and a chance to spend an hour of so on Saturday afternoon walking round the city. It is an interesting mix of old and new with small terraced roads and open areas such as the Maltings on the banks of the Great Ouse.
The most famous things about Ely are its connection with Oliver Cromwell (the only republican leader in English history from 1653-58 as Lord Protector) and its magnificent cathedral.
The Cathedral can be seen from many places in the city and from the surrounding countryside
