Cooking eels and a 19th century experiment will be some of the activities on offer at Denver Sluice next week.
The sluice will be celebrated during a fun day on Tuesday next week from 10am-4pm.

Site Superintendent Dan Pollard will be helping visitors to learn more about the sluice.
The river inspector will be hosting boat triers plus West Norfolk Rowing Club will be running taster sessions.

Amy Tillson, of the Ouse Washes Partnership said: “We’re so excited that the Environment Agency is hosting this event at Denver Sluice, it’s a fascinating place, and so important to the Fens. It will be a great chance for people to have fun whilst discovering more about their local area.”
