Situated some seventeen miles north of Cambridge, the City of Ely rises above the flat landscape of the East Anglian fens, approximately 80 feet above sea level. Dominating the skyline is the majestic Ely Cathedral, over 1000 years old, and forming the focal point of this market town. Ely is rapidly expanding with over 15,000 inhabitants; the electrified rail link enabling London to be easily accessed, and many people travelling to work in Cambridge.
