Thurning is a village and parish lying on the Huntingdonshire-Northamptonshire border. It is about five and a half miles south-east of Oundle in the latter county.

At the time of the 2001 census, the population of Thurning Civil Parish was just 93.

The border between the two counties runs right along the village's main street, with the manor house and parish church lying on the eastern, Huntingdonshire side. The Northamptonshire part of the parish forms part of that county's Polebrook Hundred, with the Huntingdonshire part forming part of the hundred of Leightonstone.
