‘Woodmen and Fenmen: Blackfen’s story’ is a history of Blackfen from its beginnings as a hamlet in the woods, later surrounded by farmland, to its development as a residential and commercial district. Historical documents and reminiscences from past and present residents have been used to tell a story of enterprising and strong-willed individuals who have helped to build this community.
