The Sancturary and High Alter - Peterborough Cathedral

By James_C
Good morning to you all,

Many thanks for all your kind clicks, comments and thoughts on my last upload. It is very much appreciated.

Being Sunday, I have chosen to upload a picture of the sanctury and high alter of Peterborough Cathedral taken from under the central tower. I think the painted wood ceiling is truely magnificent. The cathedral was built between 1118 and 1238. It replaced the Benedictine Abbey that was built between 960 and 970AD and was destroyed by an accidental fire in 1116. The first monastry on the site was founded by King Peada in 655AD, but that was destroyed by the Vikings in 870.

Thank you for looking. I hope you enjoy it.
All the best,
