Thornhaugh is a civil parish and village in the city of Peterborough unitary authority, Cambridgeshire in the United Kingdom. For electoral purposes it forms part of Glinton and Wittering ward in North West Cambridgeshire constituency.

St Andrew's Church dates from the 12th century, although was much restored in the 19th century. The village sign commemorates the first Baron Russell of Thornhaugh.[1] Although the main village is close to the A1 road, there is a significant hamlet (Home Farm, Leicester Road, Thornhaugh) with a dozen houses about one mile west of the main village just off the A47 road, consisting of an old Hunting Lodge (now two houses) and associated farm buildings (all now residential).

The Sacrewell Farm and Country Centre is in the parish, to the east of the A1. The William Scott Abbott Trust own Sacrewell and has restored the 18th century Grade II* listed watermill and its surrounding properties, to form a centre of milling excellence and an educational tool with a £1.4 million Heritage Lottery Fund grant.[2]
