The Land of the Fanns covers a diverse area of 185 square kilometres from east London to south west London. The five year Land of the Fanns Landscape Partnership Scheme has sought to to restore, discover and celebrate this area, one of the last remaining original landscapes of London as it once was.

As the five years of the programme draw to a close, Fens, Forests and Fields is a fitting legacy for the people, places and commitment to the area of the Scheme. It captures the spirit of the place at a pivotal moment as the climate emergency and the aftermath of the pandemic force reflections on the past and a need to write a different future.

Made up of three parts: the recent past; the present; and hopes for the areas future, Fens, Forests and Fields includes a selection of personal stories from the people who live and work in the 70 square mile area of the Land of the Fanns.

All donations received will go towards the legacy programme of the Land of the Fanns, ensuring work can be continued in the area for the foreseeable future.
