Coldham is a hamlet in the civil parish of Elm in northern Cambridgeshire. At Coldham is a wind farm on large farm estate of the Cooperative Group near the settlement.[1]

The parish formerly had a church dedicated to St Ethelreda built in 1876. This was declared redundant in 2000 and has since been converted into a house.[2] The former war memorial from the church is now located at St Mark's, Friday Bridge.[3]

The village once had a railway station on the Great Eastern Railway, although there are proposals to reinstate a station as part of the Wisbech and March Bramley Line project.[4]
