Over the years Jean Ding has amassed a collection of photographs of old Fenstanton which have frequently been displayed at public functions in the village. After much cajoling by fellow villagers and friends, a selection was finally made from the collection and with additional photos kindly loaned by others in the community, has been published so that everyone can now enjoy this snapshot of the past.
