Border of Three Counties

It can be tricky sometimes knowing which county we belong to in terms of services as we are on the border of 3 counties - Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire so most of us use services from all three at different times.

Note our postcode is PE8 - which makes our postal address Peterborough and yet Peterborough is in Cambridgeshire.

  • Oundle in Northamptonshire (five minutes drive away) is nearest market town with supermarket, a local market, nurseries, secondary schools, doctors, dentists and library all at hand. 
  • Peterborough in Cambridgeshire is our nearest large city (15 minutes drive from here). This is the nearest centre for a large shopping centre, mainline train station, cinema, hospital etc. 

  • Stamford (20 minutes drive away) is another market town in Lincolnshire, slightly larger than Oundle but with similar facilities and also has its own train station. Lincolnshire County Council Information.
