Cathedral Church of St. Peter

The recent trip to England was all good. One of the places we’ve been was in the enormous cathedral in the heart of historic city of Peterborough.  It is one of the biggest and one of the important 12th century in England. The site is very beautiful and full of history…one thing, I am not very good at, you know? History! We don’t go really well but, this place is awesome. The painted ceiling is spectacular and people like me…so happy to wander around and who would have thought that the tomb of Queen Catherine or Catherine of Aragon is here?
I don’t know exactly what is this place here but, the only people allowed to go in there are the high-ranking priests.

 
 
I was really amazed knowing that this  is dated from 1230-1250, hand painted wooden ceiling and said to be one of the type surviving in Britain.

Of course! Our little lady…right after we went in to see where the kiddies go during Sunday mass, Olivia was having a look outside the cathedral. Did she wanted to run around in that massive yard? Yes, she did!
This my homework for Jenny Matlock’s class. Go and see her for more awesome “C” posts.
