Wisbech St Mary is a small village, 2 miles (3 km) west of the town of Wisbech in the Fenland district of Cambridgeshire, England. It lies between two roads, the B1169 and the A47. The population (including Guyhirn and Thorney Toll) of the civil parish at the 2011 Census was 3,556.[1]

History

Wisbech St.Mary was the least nucleated of all the Isle parishes. Other villages include Murrow, Guyhirn and Thorney Toll. The Peterborough-Sutton bridge branch of the former M. & G.N joint railway, opened in 1866, has stations in the parish at Murrow (East) and Wisbech St Mary. The March-Spalding line opened in 1867 had stations at Murrow (West) and Guyhirn. The Pepys family farmed a manor in the parish. It was leased to Samuel Pepys in 1639 for 21 years.[2] A mission chapel was built at Thomolas Drove and Primitive Methodist chapels in the village and Tholomas Drove. The village has an Anglican church, a primary school and some public houses. [3] The village is built on an old watercourse, a roddon; such sand and silt beds are firmer and rise higher than the surrounding shrinking peat fens.[4]
