Located east of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire, Eye is the largest village in the Peterborough area with over 5,300 residents. It was once an island in the fens and the centre of the village is just a few metres above sea level. To the north is the Lincolnshire county border and the town of Crowland with its historic abbey.

The village hosts a Church of England primary school, doctor’s surgery, a public house, two general stores and a pharmacy. A number of other successful businesses operate across the village. There is a well-used village hall and community centre, a library and a number of vibrant and successful community groups.

The parish consists of two areas, Eye and Eye Green which include two nature reserves that were previously used for clay extraction, one of them Star Pit is a site of specific scientific interest due to its unique habitat that supports rare invertebrates.
