about

In 1604, early in the reign of King James 1, an attempt was made to drain the 30,000 acres of Deeping Fen in South Lincolnshire. Thomas Lovell, an adventurer with experience of fen drainage on the continent, gambled his personal fortune to undertake the task.  The local Slodgers, fen men who made their living and fed their families by fishing and wildfowling in the fens, rose up against this work to try and prevent it.

The story follows Annie Owen, a single mother, her son Toby, and Jake Fowler, an ex soldier who had recently returned to his native village of Cubbit to fish and trap wildfowl.  These locals were caught up in the riots with fatal results.
