While the name Gorefield first appears in a manuscript from 1190, the village has no visible link to its pre-Victorian past. Gorefield as a developing village dates to the 19th and 20th centuries. The Church of St Paul was built in 1870 at a cost of £2,000 with the formation of the ecclesiastical parish of Gorefield from Leverington under the Leverington Rectory Act..[page needed]
In 2004, Gorefield won the Fenland District Award in the Cambridgeshire Village of the Year contest.
