Taken a few weeks ago, a few of my own recent photo’s of the Magnificent Peterborough Cathedral, in Cambridgeshire England, also officially titled The Cathedral Church of St Peter, St Paul and St Andrew. 

Strangely, it’s one of England’s lesser known Cathedral Churches.  The West Front is in my opinion one of the most stunning in the world - especially when walking through the giant wooden gates into the Cathedral Precinct.
