Deeping Gate

The bridge connecting Deeping St. James and Deeping Gate

Deeping Gate is a village and civil parish, lying on the River Welland in Cambridgeshire. Traditionally, the area was part of the Soke of Peterborough, geographically considered a part of Northamptonshire; it now falls within the City of Peterborough unitary authority area. With a very small population, void of any major services, including a post office or even a chapel, the community depends on nearby Market Deeping, one and a quarter miles (2 km) north of the river in Lincolnshire, for economic and market services. Renaissance composer Robert Fayrfax was a native of the village.

St. Peter's, Maxey, the most northerly ecclesiastical parish in the Diocese of Peterborough, includes Deeping Gate. For local government purposes it forms part of Northborough ward, within North West Cambridgeshire parliamentary constituency. Deeping Gate falls within the drainage area of the Welland and Deepings Internal Drainage Board.[1]
