Wisbech St Mary, Cambridgeshire

Located just south of the Fenland town of Wisbech, Wisbech St Mary is today a small village mostly arranged in a linear fashion along two southwest-northeast oriented streets with a further road running perpendicular to the railway station. Wisbech St Mary is surrounded by fen, and lies just 2m above sea level at its western end, rising a little to nearly 3m OD on its eastern side where the fenland peat meets clay deposits. Very little historical or archaeological research has been carried out within the village in the past.
