Millfield, Peterborough


Millfield, Peterborough

Millfield is residential area of the city of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire in the United Kingdom. For electoral purposes it comprises the main part of Peterborough Central ward. A multicultural area, the Faidhan-e-Madina Mosque opened in nearby New England in 2003.[1]

Gladstone and The Beeches County Primary and Queens Drive Infant schools are located in the area; following the closure of nearby Deacon's School in July 2007, secondary pupils attend the flagship Thomas Deacon Academy which opened in September 2007.

The area falls within the ecclesiastical parish of Saint Mark (Lincoln Road) with Saint Barnabas (Taverners Road). The former Italian Catholic mission church of Saint Joseph (San Giuseppe) was run by the Scalabrini Fathers for many years and the adjacent nursery, which opened in 1977, was originally run by the missionary sisters.
