  • Mareham le Fen is a village and civil parish about 6 miles south from the town of Horncastle, Lincolnshire, England. The hamlet of Mareham Gate lies about 0.5 miles south from the village, and it is believed that the deserted medieval village of Birkwood is situated nearby. Mareham le Fen is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as "Marun", with 33 households, 60 acres of meadow, 300 acres of woodland, and a church. The Lord of the Manor was William I. The parish church is dedicated to St Helen, and is a Grade II* listed building of greenstone and dating from the 13th century. It was partially rebuilt in 1879, and in 1974 the vestry was extended using stone from the demolished church of St Margaret at Woodhall. In the north aisle is a tomb to James Roberts who died 1826, and sailed in the Endeavour with Captain Cook and Sir Joseph Banks. In the churchyard is a medieval stone cross, which is both Grade II listed and a scheduled monument. Dating from the 14th century, it was restored in 1904. The Grade II listed Royal Oak public house has a datestone of 1473, but is believed to date from the 17th century, with 18th- and 20th-century additions.
