Some 65 miles long, the Welland is a lowland river flowing east from the Midlands to the Wash and considered a major waterway through Fenland. It is also an important part of East Anglian flood defences. This delightful DVD follows the river from source to sea, stopping off to see the scenery and historic points of interest.
