Gunthorpe, Peterborough

Gunthorpe is a residential area of the city of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire in the United Kingdom. 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.
