Manea, pronounced /ˈmeɪniː/, is a village in the District of Fenland, Cambridgeshire, England. It is an expanding village in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Notable features are Manea railway station and RSPB Welches Dam nature reserve on the Ouse Washes.[1] The area has been inhabited for centuries, and Stonea Camp, an Iron Age hill fort is located in the vicinity of the village.

Manea was once a hamlet in the parish of Coveney, and in the seventeenth century Manea was one of the sites where Charles I was planning to build a new town, to be called Charlemont.[2] The village's parish church is dedicated to St. Nicholas and was built in 1875 to replace an earlier building dating from 1791.[3] The village has a brass band, Manea Silver Band, which meets for practices in Manea Methodist Chapel.[4]
