Swingbrow (sometimes written Swing Brow) is a hamlet near to Chatteris in Cambridgeshire. It is deep in the fenland and lies alongside the Forty Foot Drain built by Vermuyden. A Neolithic (4000 BC to 2201 BC) "perforated object" was discovered on the site, but the current buildings on the site are largely modern.

The hamlet formerly had a pub, the Ram Inn, which is now a residence, and a saddlery, now demolished. No official signs denote the hamlet because it is not safe to install these on the banks of the drain.

The hamlet comprises two roads, both ols droveways; First Drove and Second Drove.
