Map of Peterborough c.1200s

428

A fascinating – even without scale – hand drawn impression of Peterborough in and around the 1200s. Of particular interest is the stream running down what is today Long Causeway and Bridge Street – and often cited as the reason for the abnormally wide Long Causeway – and the bridges that crossed this stream at Westgate, Cowgate and Priestgate.
