The picturesque village of Parson Drove is situated approximately 5 miles west of the nearest town of Wisbech. The historic town of Wisbech, with its river port, is known as The Capital of The Fens and is in the district of Fenland under the umbrella of Fenland District Council, which in turn is in the county of Cambridgeshire (Cambridgeshire County Council) in England.

Parson Drove is one of the few Villages in Cambridgeshire to have a Village Green and together with the open countryside is perfect for a quiet stroll or picnic. The countryside exhibits examples of the considerable drainage system which enables this area to achieve its full agricultural potential. This drainage system also provides for excellent coarse fishing and is utilised by clubs from far and wide.

There are several old buildings or structures within the village including The Cage which was built by John Peck . Some of these buildings date from the 16th Century, 10 of these are of architectural or historical importance and are Grade II Listed Buildings, many of these are well worthy of a visit.
