Dorothy L Sayers’s THE NINE TAILORS Part 2: inspecting drains and viewing sluices in the soggy Fens The Curiously Specific Book Club

In Part Two of our adventure in the Fens, we’re using a classic Lord Peter Wimsey novel to navigate our way around the fiendishly complex network of drains and sluices that prevent this part of the UK from being permanently underwater.We visit the town of Ramsey – once an island – and take in the ancient Forty Foot Drain. We admire the great wonder of engineering that is the Denver Sluice, but fail to understand how it works. Instead, we repair to March for one final church visit.
