Located in North West Cambridgeshire (England), the nature reserve, one of the oldest in the world, was started by a member of the famous Rothschild family. The fen was purchased in 1910 by the Hon. Charles Rothschild and donated to the Society for the Promotion of Nature Reserves (now the Royal Society for Nature Conservation) in 1919. The lodge (bungalow), built on stilts to avoid flooding, is still used for teaching, pictures below.

 

The land was formerly natural swamp and marsh, being at about sea level, drained as recently as the 1850s. It is being encouraged to return to its natural state.
