Peterborough Jewish Community

City of Peterborough

Although the city of Peterborough (a municipal borough until 1974) in the east of England was traditionally within the county of Northamptonshire, it and the surrounding localities, known as the Soke of Peterborough, became an administrative county in its own right in 1899. From 1965 to 1974, this was merged with Huntingdonshire to form the county of  Peterborough and Huntingdonshire. In 1974, the area (with similar, but not identical, boundaries to the Soke) became the local government district of Peterborough within the county of Cambridgeshire, until 1998, when it became a unitary authority, remaining within the ceremonial county of Cambridgeshire.
