Description and Travel

Gedney Hill (sometimes called "Fen End") is both a village and parish about 96 miles north of London, about 7 miles west of Wisbech off the A47 trunk road, 14 miles south-east of Spalding and 10 miles south of Holbeach. Fleet parish lies to the west and Sutton St Edmund parish to the east. The Old South Eau Drain forms the southern border, with Cambridgeshire just across the canal. The area is marshy Fenland, drained by many small canals and the South Holland Main Drain. The parish encompasses just under 1,900 acres.
