Wansford is actually two separate villages under different parish councils. Wansford Parish Council, within the area of Peterborough Unitary Authority, comprises the village north of, and including, Wansford Old Bridge. More at www.wansfordvillage.com

The village to the south of Wansford Old Bridge (The Haycock side) is represented by Sibson-cum-Stibbington Parish Council and comes under Huntingdonshire District Council. Wansford station is actually in Stibbington parish. There is a GP surgery, [http://www.wansford.co.uk| Wansford and Kings Cliffe Practice] on Yarwell Road.

It was split between two counties until 1965 when it became under one authority, (Huntingdon and Peterborough). The boundary post between the Soke of Peterborough (the north side of the Nene) and Huntingdonshire (the south bank) is still there halfway across the bridge.

On 2 May, 2007 the helicopter of Phillip Carter, entrepreneur and owner of the Haycock, was found, crashed nearby in woods at Kings Cliffe.
