Northorpe is a hamlet in the civil parish of Thurlby, in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated about 1 mile (1.6 km) south from Bourne.

The village lies on the bus route between Bourne and Peterborough, run by Delaine along the A15.

Northorpe is connected to the National Grid; work was completed in November 2006 after a campaign by local residents in 1997-1998 which resulted in the approval for the work to be done.[citation needed]

A shoe display competition is held every July on the Green; local people design shoes, and the winning design is produced by village cobblers. This event has been under threat in recent years as the cobbler trade is struggling.[citation needed]

The village had a goat farm which produced popular south Lincolnshire goats' cheese.[citation needed]

Village amenities include a post box and a telephone box.

Northorpe is near to Elsea and Math Woods, the latter associated with the tale of Nanny Rutt.[citation needed]

Thomas Minot, later Archbishop of Dublin, became parson here in 1349.[1]
