Rather interesting Peterborough facts
Did you know that Holme Fen, 6 miles south of Peterborough, is the lowest point in Britian at 9 feet below sea level
Did you know that Catherine of Aragon is buried in what is now Peterborough Cathedral ? Her last year of life – fasting and confining herself to one room - had been spent in Kimbolton Castle in the same county. In keeping with the resolution of ‘the King’s great matter’ her funeral dignities in the then Abbey were those of a dowager Princess of Wales (as widow of Prince Arthur), not Henry ’s Queen.
