Fenland is a district in Cambridgeshire at latitude 52°36′00.00″ North, longitude 0°06′00.00″ East.
Fenland is the most rural of the five districts of Cambridgeshire with an administrative centre in March. It also includes the towns of Wisbech, Chatteris, Whittlesey and has a 2004 population of over 86,000
At October 2009, this is the least well mapped part of Cambridgeshire with only March having substantial presence.
But by June 2010 we've worked hard on this to complete pretty much all of it.

Progress - Wisbech
At over 20,000 people, this is the largest town in Fenland. The neighbouring communities of Leverington, Elm, Emneth (Norfolk) and Wisbech St Mary bring the total for this conurbation to nearly 30,000.
A mapping party on 14/15 November 2009 completed most of Wisbech town and most of Leverington, though a bit of the data is still being added as at November 24. Some technical problems meant some of the centre was not completed, and a further visit the following week was rained off, so unfortunately we still have a little to do.
... but now complete as of March 2010 including all the surrounding villages.
Progress - March
Appears complete (almost all by Laverock in mid 2008). Pop. 20,000
Progress - Whittlesey
Almost nothing of this 16,000 strong community mapped at Oct 2009.
Proposed mapping party for April 2010. Anyone interested please contact me at https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/davidearl
Following the mapping "party" (two people) in April and a subsequent one-man visit in May, the town of Whittlesey is complete, although some of the outlying villages still need surveying.
Coates and Eastrea surveyed Oct 2011 Richardm565
Progress - Chatteris
Almost nothing of this 9,000 strong community mapped at Oct 2009.
I started mapping Chatteris in January 2010 and intend to complete it over the next few months. --TomS 10:53, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
