Manea is a fast expanding rural Fenland village between Chatteris and March off the B1093. Peterborough and Cambridge are only some 30 miles equal distance from the village. Huntingdon can be reached in just over 30 minutes. There is a convenient railway station with currently twenty stops a day.
Manea was once a mainly agricultural area, but with the expansion and new housing many of our new residents now work in neighbouring towns or commute to London from Huntingdon or Ely.

The Parish Council celebrated its 100 years anniversary in 1995 with an Exhibition in the Village Hall. The Council meets monthly, on Mondays at 7.00pm, usually in the Village Hall.
