Information on Ely
Just 14 miles from Cambridge is the cathedral city of Ely. With its tall towers the cathedral can be seen for miles across the fenlands. Ely is the third smallest city in England.
Ely was named as a City of Virtue in the 1974 Royal Charter.
Ely has many historic buildings and an appealing shopping area, which twice weekly on Thursdays and Saturdays holds a popular general market.
The Great Ouse River runs through the city. The Cambridge boating team practice on the Great Ouse for the annual Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race and in fact the boat race was actually held here in 1944, the only time it was not held on River Thames in London.
Ely has convenient transport links into Cambridge and London as well as the Great River Ouse with its connecting rivers to enjoy a boat trip.
Ely has many attractions on offer. Oliver Cromwell’s house in St Mary’s Street, a superb example of a half-timber framed house where he and his family lived for ten years, is a museum detailing the life and events of this legendary man. The building also doubles up as the local Tourist Information Centre. Wicken Fen Nature Reserve owned by the National Trust since 1899 is a huge peat-black wetland area. Here you can walk along trails for miles and see many species of birds, animals, insects, flowers etc and admire some of the delightful windmills speckled around the landscape. After a long walk you can relax in the coffee shop and visitor centre.
The city of Ely has many striking residential properties in such areas as Cambridge Road and Houghton Gardens. If you require a structural building survey in Ely then we would urge you to consider an Independent Chartered Surveyor’s structural survey rather than just a mortgage companies survey as buying a property is such a major investment. Being independent we work for you and only you with your interests at heart not the mortgage company or estate agents.

This ensures that you get expert advice on any issues that we may find with the property we are surveying. All our surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors – RICS – and are Independent Building Surveyors. Being ‘independent’ means that they are working for you and you alone; they do not work for a mortgage company or estate agents, so they have your best interests at heart.
All our survey contain lots of images, clearly showing any problems that we have identified at the property such as woodworm, rising damp or cracking to the walls. We also use sketches in our survey which are aimed at helping you to understand how certain areas are constructed or to help show more clearly a problem that we have identified. You will also find lots of definitions of any building terminology that we may use in our survey, as we firmly believe in ‘Plain English’ and really want you to fully understand what we are saying in the survey report.
