Work Description

Handbook of Fen Skating by N. Goodman, A. Goodman first published in 1882

Excerpts

Running or travelling skating, as distinguished from
those gracefull evolutions on the ice which have no object
but their own performance, has been named "fen skating"
from the locality in which it is most practised,
and brought to its highest perfection.
...

The reader must not, however, suppose that this style of skating is
necessarily local or circumscribed. It might well be practised, and it
is the desire of the authors to promote its practice, in other
localities where sheets or tracts of readily frozen waters are to be
found.
Page 1-2, added by David Dermott. "This excerpt defines "fen skating" but notes that this style (skate travelling) can and should be practiced in any place where suitable ice surfaces occur."
