Northborough, as its name suggests, lies some 7 miles to the north of the cathedral City of Peterborough, on the Cambridgeshire / South Lincolnshire border.
The area has extremely important historical sites. Recent archaeological excavations discovered flint tool, pottery and animal bones dating back thousands of years. There is evidence of Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman settlements throughout the village. However, most of the area’s fascinating history is far from buried. There is a wealth of historic buildings – some dating back to the medieval period – and many with a colourful past.
