A typical Fenland market town near Huntingdon, Ramsey started life as a small settlement with a Benedictine abbey, founded in 969 by Duke Allwyn, which had impassable fens on three sides. It was only in the 13th century that it expanded and became a town with a weekly market. The abbey’s remains include a restored 15th century gatehouse and the parish church. One of the town’s widest streets, Great Whyte, was originally a waterway.
