Lode with Longmeadow is situated seven miles north east of Cambridge and seven miles west of Newmarket. It is the first of the Fen edge villages and takes its name from Bottisham Lode. The lodes are man made waterways built some time between Roman and medieval times to bring supplies to villages via the River Cam. Nearby is Anglesey Abbey, a large country house now owned by the National Trust which also maintains Lode watermill.
