Peterborough – Peterborough Cathedral (Monks’ Cemetery)

Tucked away at the east end of Peterborough Cathedral are these stone coffins, which were discovered during Victorian excavations. The coffins were in the monks’ graveyard and it wasn’t known who was buried in them, it could either be monks or those who had made a financial contribution towards the Abbey. It’s thought that the burials date to around the twelfth century, with the stone coffins now looking perhaps a little forlorn in their current location.
