W’s linked to Peterborough Cathedral: West front; working; Wealth; Water; Wake; Worship; WOW; Weddings and Windows.
The west front has the WOW factor. It gets me every time, whether it’s alone in the early morning or late evening or there’s hustle and bustle around and in front of it like this day during the heritage festival, (the festival is 16-17 June this year). Peterborough Cathedral is a very busy place, with worship, work and WOW factor it has a draw that can’t always be described.
We can now say it’s 900 years since this building was started (it took 120 years to complete), I hope those around when it celebrates 900 years since the west front was consecrated enjoy being in it’s presence as much as I do now.
We’re getting to the end of my AtoZ of all things Peterborough Cathedral and I hope you’ve got a hint of the place. It’s not always thought of and yet, it’s got it’s place in history.
Peterborough, UK, is celebrating 900 years of the current Peterborough Cathedral building which is my 2018 A-Z theme. Rather than give you lots of information which you can get from the website, books or by visiting and having a wonderful guided tour I’ve provided a list of topics and an illustration of one of them.
