Doddington is a village in Cambridgeshire, 4 miles (6 km) between Chatteris and March. Historically, Doddington was one of the largest parishes in England. Under the Doddington Rectory Division Act of 1856 it was divided into seven rectories, Benwick, Doddington, Wimblington, March Old Town, March St Peter, March St John and March St Mary.
In the centre of the village is a clocktower built in 1897 in commemoration of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. The village is also notable for its large carnival held every 1st Saturday in July, followed by a sports event after. The village also has a public house, The George. Local amenities includes a post office, a few shops and a hospital.
Christopher Tye, composer and organist, was rector here after taking holy orders.
The village is under the administration of Fenland District Council.
There are some pictures and a description of the church at the Cambridgeshire Churches website.
