Peterborough – Peterborough Cathedral (Boulder)

I’m not sure many people will find this particularly interesting, although I did. It’s a huge lump of stone that was taken out of the north west pier of the cathedral tower when it was reconstructed in the 1880s. The central tower was falling down at that time and since great lumps of stone like this were thirty feet up in the pillar, that’s perhaps not entirely a surprise. Nearly of the stone frontage was put back, but they didn’t replace the inner core. Instead, this lump of stone is now located outside of the cathedral in the graveyard.
