Thurgarton is a small parish in Nottinghamshire lying on the north bank of the River Trent. The village lies at the centre of the parish and straddles the A612 road which runs from the city of Nottingham, 16 kilometres to the west, to the minster town of Southwell, 3 kilometres to the east. Thurgarton has a population of about 400 living in 200 houses, a village hall, the parish church of St. Peter, a Methodist chapel (recently closed), one pub (there used to be two) and a beautiful cricket pitch.
