Spotlight on Gunthorpe, Peterborough

Gunthorpe lies to the north of Peterborough, right near Werrington. Very close to the A15 means it’s a great location that is well connected to the larger villages and the main city centre of Peterborough.

For electoral purposes it forms part of Paston and South Werrington wards. Geographically, Gunthorpe lies to the south of Werrington and north of Paston, with Fulbridge Road to the west; Car Dyke, the Roman ditch, straddles Gunthorpe’s east side.

Building began in the 1950s and continued until the early 1990s. South Gunthorpe, politically a part of Paston, consists largely of council housing, the local school being Gunthorpe County Primary. The more affluent North Gunthorpe, politically part of South Werrington, consists largely of private detached housing, the local school being Norwood County Primary. Following the closure of nearby Walton Comprehensive School in July 2007, secondary pupils from Gunthorpe attend The Voyager Academy which opened in September 2007.

As estate agents in Peterborough we love Gunthorpe as it has a real heart and soul, and many people that live here have done so for years. It has all you need within walking distance.
