Thorpe Edge is a housing estate in Idle, Bradford, West Yorkshire, England.
Thorpe Edge is situated off Harrogate Road in the north-east of the City of Bradford and borders Idle and Five Lane Ends, Greengates and Eccleshill.
The estate was mostly constructed in the 1950s. It was constructed mostly of low-rise housing but with two high-rise developments; the York Place flats and the Fairhaven Green flats. All of the high-rise flats are eight-storeys in height and still standing, the larger York House has shops on the ground floor. Some mid-rise flats were also constructed along the Northern edge of the estate. These were demolished in the 2010s. Some of the older low-rise houses were demolished in the 2000s.
The estate has a church; St John the Divine on Idlethorp Way, a school; Parkland Primary School and shops on the ground floor of York House. The estate is surrounded by areas with a greater number of amenities and there is a large Sainsbury's supermarket nearby at Greengates.
