Whittlesey is a market town 6 miles (10 km) east of Peterborough in the Fenland district of Cambridgeshire, England
Whittlesey was noted for its brickyards, around which the former hamlet of King's Dyke was based for much of the 20th century, although only one now remains, following the closure of the Saxon brickworks in 2011.
Whittlesey was infamous for its number of public houses; folklore dictates that, at one time there were 52 of them - one for each week of the year. In 1797, a local farmer noted in his diary "they like drinking better than fighting in Whittlesea."
In other history, Whittlesey was an important trade route in the late Bronze Age (about 1100-800 BC), where civilisations traded with many places, including the Balkans. Such evidence is clear at the important archaeological site of Must Farm, where log boats, roundhouses, bowls with food in them, and the most complete wooden wheel were housed.
The town has one secondary school, Sir Harry Smith Community College, which opened in 1953 on the site of Whittlesey Workhouse, and three primary schools. There is another primary school in the neighbouring village of Coates.
Whittlesey Museum is located in the Old Town Hall and contains collections relating to the natural and cultural heritage of Whittlesey and the surrounding area.
