Wisbech St Mary is a small village, 2 miles (3 km) west of the town of Wisbech in Cambridgeshire, England. and lies between two roads, the B1169 and the A47. The population (including Guyhirn and Thorney Toll) of the civil parish at the 2011 Census was 3,556.[1]

The village has a church, a primary school and some public houses.

The village is built on an old watercourse, a roddon; such sand and silt beds are firmer and rise higher than the surrounding shrinking peat fens.[2]
