The picturesque village of Parson Drove is situated approximately 5 miles to the west of the historic town of Wisbech. A large fenland town with a river port, it 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
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 fenland 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 medieval times, and many in the village are of significant architectural or historical importance and are Grade II or II* listed, many of these are well worthy of a visit.
The village has many facilities available which include a Post Office, General Store, Takeaway, Hair-Dressers, Public Houses, Village Hall, Playing Field, Primary School, and 3 Churches. The village covers a large area and comprises over 500 dwellings. There are various voluntary groups, organisations and clubs in the village providing the villagers and those from our neighbouring villages with many opportunities to get together for all sorts of different activities.
