The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey


The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey retells an 850-year story of farming, communities and life in the Cambridgeshire Fens. It provides a place which enables visitors to explore Cambridgeshire’s rural history and locality, as well as inspiring their imagination, learning and creativity. The site consists of two halves: the Farmland Museum, a collection of farm buildings housing an extensive collection of exhibits, displays and objects, and Denny Abbey, a unique Grade I listed building and medieval monastic development owned by English Heritage (managed by the Farmland Museum, on English Heritage’s behalf).


“Our purpose, here at the Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey is to share the stories, tales and history of our site, and the people who lived and worked here, through our exhibits, objects and artefacts.”
