Thurstonland has been since 1974 a rural village in the civil parish of Kirkburton in Kirklees district municipality in West Yorkshire, England. The village is situated on a hilltop above Brockholes and to the southeast of Farnley Tyas and north of Shepley. It has a population of almost 400.

Thurstonland Urban District was created in 1894 and merged with Farnley Tyas Urban District in 1925, becoming Thurstonland and Farnley Tyas Urban District. It was in turn abolished in 1938 under a County Review Order, and most of the district was merged into Kirkburton Urban District and the remainder into the Holmfirth Urban District. It is just outside the borders of the Peak District National Park.
