Based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Splashbacks of Distinction have a real passion for toughened glass in and around the home. We have transformed many properties, both commercial and domestic with our glass splashbacks, for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices. We cover many areas outside of Hertfordhire too, including Wicken in Cambridgeshire.
Wicken consists principally of fenland covering 3,964 acres in eastern Cambridgeshire. Its western border largely follows the course of the River Cam, and its southern border separating it from Burwell follows the winding Wicken Lode, which flows into Reach Lode just before the latter meets the Cam. A fenland waterway forms its eastern border with Soham parish. Since at least the 10th century the parish has also contained the hamlet of Upware in its isolated south-west corner on the Cam.
East Cambridgeshire is known for its great quantity of archaeological findings from the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. Of Wicken some Bronze Age activity is known as there are a few subsided barrows. Stone Age flint tools, Bronze Age weapons and Roman coinage have also been found in the parish as well as a few spears and other weapons from the Anglo-Saxon era.
Wickens relative isolation and poverty has meant that several of the late medieval and early modern timber framed houses survive. The medieval limestone cross which formerly stood on Cross Green was unburied and reinstated there in 1973.
Wicken was listed as Wicha in the Domesday Book and Wiken in around 1200. The name comes from an Old English dative plural wicum meaning the dwellings or the trading settlement.
Wicken also has the last twelve sided Smock windmill of its type still working in England which has been restored to full working order by an enthusiastic team of volunteers. The mill produces wholemeal flour, white flour, finest white flour, wholemeal and white Spelt and rye, all grown without the use of fertilisers and milled using only windpower driving two sets of burr crystal mill stones. The mill is open during the first weekend of every month and whenever the sails are turning.
The village was struck by a tornado on 23 November 1981, as part of the record breaking nationwide tornado outbreak on that day.
