Peterborough Cathedral
  • Peterborough Cathedral
  • Peterborough in Anglo-Saxon times was called ‘Medeshamstede’, which translates loosely to ‘Homestead belonging to Mede’. The very first monastery which was built on this site back in 655AD was known as The Medeshamstede Monastery. In 870, according to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, the Viking invasion of Mercia reached Medeshamstede and the Abbey was razed and all the monks were slaughtered. The Hedda Stone (The Monks Stone) has twelve carved figures on it and is traditionally held to be a monument to those monks who perished at the hands of the Danes in 870AD. Some believe it’s an even earlier sculture.
