I’m trying to figure out where Peterborough lies within Network Rail’s regions. I’m aware it has the ECML running through however can’t seem to find what region it lies in.

There’s a map on Network Rail’s site that suggests there are four Eastern Region subsidiary “routes”, 3 of which are geographical areas, and one is the main ECML itself, that passes through 2 of the area routes, “East Midlands” and “North and East” but not “Anglia”:
It’s clear from that map that each “region” is not necessarily organised the same way.

The LNE/Anglia Route boundary was at MP 98.40 near King's Dyke, a couple of miles east of Peterborough station.
Today's new NR Eastern Region includes several old and renamed Routes, and the East Coast Route and Anglia Route are two of those in the Peterborough area (East Midlands is another).
The local boundary between Anglia and East Coast Routes is probably still at King's Dyke.
From what one can tell, it's the Regions that now hold the power within NR, rather than the Routes.

Routes are now effectively regions and the new regions are split into routes. All makes perfect sense.
