The parade ends at Jubilee Park where there are events and activities taking place
Ely, built on an island in what were historically the low-lying, marshy, fens. Ely is famous for its cathedral which stands proud and can be seen for many miles in the surrounding flat landscape.
As I walked around Jubilee Park it was no surprise to find Peter Carter the Eel and fishtrap maker. He was demonstrating making willow traps, while his 12 year old daughter was demonstrating fish net making
Of course I couldn’t attend the Eel day without eating some Eel. Jellied Eels were available but I decided to try Oak smoked Eel with was really nice.
