Peterborough is a city in the East of England. It includes the town of Peterborough and the surrounding countryside including the settlements of Wittering, and Werrington. The city lies largely in the traditional county of Northamptonshire.


It was formed on April 1, 1974 by a merger of the Borough of Peterborough, Old Fletton Urban District, Barnack Rural District, and part of Norman Cross Rural District and the Thorney Rural District, areas that had previously been part of the administrative county of Huntingdon and Peterborough.


On April 1, 1998, the city was given independence from Cambridgeshire as a unitary authority. It is once again an administrative county in its own right (having been the independent Soke of Peterborough, whose boundaries were similar, although not identical, from 1889 to 1965). It borders Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire, and Cambridgeshire.

Cardiff City v Peterborough 12/01/02 (2492 words)
City opened brightly, lost their way, had a purple patch just before half-time, conceded a goal either side of half-time and went through the motions in the second half without ever looking like getting back in the game, it really was a depressing day.
Peterborough, inspired by Tyler took the lead seconds before half time as a Tom Williams cross from the left was misjudged by keeper Alexander which allowed the persisent Leon McKenzie to head the ball home from six yards.
Peterborough increased their lead in the 54th minute with a spectacular effort from Neale Fenn who chased a long ball out of defence, outpaced defenders Scott Young and Rhys Weston to smash a 20-yard right-footed volley past a stunned Alexander into the roof of the net.
