Travel Tips for Peterborough

Famous people of Peterborough

by sourbugger

Whilst a few famous figures have lived in Peterborough (see other general tips) the city itself has produced few famous faces (sourbugger included)

Of the few, three of them are commemorated in the names of the Car Parks to the Queensgate shopping complex :

John Clare was a local poet. Never read his stuff, but it it probably witters on about trees and birds and stuff.

Edith Cavell a famous Nurse, although obviously not as famous as Florence Nightingale. Her memory is also preserved in the naming of the second hospital in the City.

Willian Royce was also a local boy - and half of the partnership that produced the famous motor car marque.

In addition, I recently found out that William Palay is also a product of the city. He was the Theologian and churchman who wrote on the Teleological argument. He argued that if you found a watch in the street, you would not presume that it had come together by chance. Rather, you would presume, it had had a designer and been left there. How much more so, Paley argued, a human or the world - which leads a belief in God as the only possible solution.

He obviously was not born in Stanground, or Dogsthorpe.

DONT STEP ON MY TRAIN

by BerniShand

Well, thats what brides usually say, but now you can actually get married at the Nene Valley Railway, so you may be allowed to after all !

there are six rooms [including two railway carriages] which are licensed for civil services, you can even hire your own train !

Weekend in Peterborough

by Suzze

"Hi Flying at Sibson Airfield!"

Hubbie and I descended up here this weekend so he could take to the skies at Sibson Airfield!
He had one of those red letter packages for his birthday and eventually booked an aerobactic flying trip in a Pitt's Special airplane. We decided to make a weekend of it and went up the day before and stayed at the Marriot in Peterborough.
We arrived mid afternoon and spent the time before dinner chilling out by the pool, well I did anyway. The other half hit the gym and sauna, I was quite happy to while away a few hours laying on the sunbeds reading! The pool was too crowded for me!

The next morning we drove to the airfield to be told that his flight was cancelled due to low cloud and that it might be possible to do it at the end of the afternoon. So, we drove off and whiled away the rest of the day driving around the quaint little villages and towns around us. Hoping that hubbie could still do what we drove up here to do.......

"Wansford"

We drove just a few miles down the road and came across Wansford. We parked the car up and had a wonder round this little village. It was only a small place but very quaint and so quite. We walked along the bridge and back again just to have a little look around. There were allot of open spaces that we could see from the bridge, cottages and thatched roofed houses, it was like a time warp in a way. You don't see many places like this anymore.

"Historic Stamford Town"

This was a really lovely town and one which I think the people that live there are proud of. I don't know much about Stamford as I wasn't intending on visiting this place. It's very historic and have since found out it's been many a backdrop for lots of movies and tv dramas. Not surprised as this town has so much character and history. Nothing has been touched and has stood the test of time with it's cobbled streets and quaint little pubs and restaurants. I could have easily have spent the day here but when you have a husband that hates shopping it's not the done thing to bring him to places like this! Having said that though, we had a really nice wonder around the town and walked around a fayre that was going on there on the green.
