Haunted Ely

There are many tales of ghosts in Ely, and many books that tell you their stories. Haunted Ely by Margaret Haynes and Vivienne Doughty is our favourite book that tells the stories of St. Etheldreda and the other ghosts that can be found here.

Cromwell and Ely

Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England, lived in Ely for 10 years. Today the House, the only surviving former Cromwell residence other than Hampton Court, has been recreated to show how his family would have lived in the mid 17th Century.

But who was he and why is he so important to British history?

"He was King in all but name"

"He banned Christmas"
