Lode is a small village in East Cambridgeshire on the southern edge of The Fens. It lies just north of the B1102 between Quy and Swaffham Bulbeck, to the north east of Cambridge.

The village's name is derived from its location at the southern end of Bottisham Lode that links it to the River Cam. A lode is an artificial water channel used to drain the Fens, thought to be of Roman origin.

Lode also has the smaller hamlet settlement of Long Meadow as part of the parish to the east along the B1102.

Lode is a comparatively new civil parish, having been separated from Bottisham in 1894.
