I never weary of great churches. It is my favorite kind of mountain scenery. Mankind was never so happily inspired as when it made a cathedral.
– Robert Louis Stevenson
Today, I have been to Peterborough Cathedral with my class (in case I have not mentioned, I am training to be a Primary school teacher). This was my first visit to the Cathedral, despite living my entire 20 something years of life within 20 miles of it.
I know I am a bit of a history obsessive, I love the romance and the stories of time gone by. I love the notion of time and all the people that have seen and walked where I have. So, I know that I find Cathedrals and Castles and all historical buildings and sites to be more impressive than many people I know. I am the person who, for my 18th birthday, persuaded my Mum to take me to Althorp House (where Princess Diana grew up and is now laid to rest), for I love history. So, bear with me if this is not your idea of an exciting day trip!
