Doddington is a village in Cambridgeshire, 4 miles (6 km) between Chatteris and March. Historically, Doddington was one of the largest parishes in England. Under the Doddington Rectory Division Act of 1856 it was divided into seven rectories, Benwick, Doddington, Wimblington, March Old Town, March St Peter, March St John and March St Mary.

In the centre of the village is a clocktower built in 1897 in commemoration of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. The village is also notable for its large carnival held every 1st saturday in July, followed by a sports event after. The village also has two very good public houses, The George and The Three Tuns

There are some pictures and a description of the church at the Cambridgeshire Churches website.[1]
