Our County Council is Northamptonshire County Council and they manage our schools administrations, school meal service, library service, roads maintenance and much more. Full details of all their services can be found on their website.
East Northamptonshire Council collects our council tax and provides our planning, local elections and recycling and waste collections amongst others. Full details of all their services can be found on their website.
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. This is all part of East Northamptonshire.
- 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. Cambridgshire County Council Information.
- 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.
