High level repairs at Peterborough Cathedral

Stone Edge is on site at the magnificent Peterborough Cathedral where we are undertaking high window and stonework repairs. Scaffolding has been carefully erected inside the crossing tower lantern to access the high windows and ceiling. The work has been scheduled to ensure minimum disruption to the busy schedule of services and events at the Cathedral. This high level work is not for the faint hearted but does allow closer inspection of the stunning 12th century ceiling.

Peterborough Cathedral

Peterborough is well known for its Early English Gothic fa├žade and is of architectural significance, dating back to the 12th century. The Cathedral was awarded a grant from the First World War Centenary Fund, one of 24 cathedrals across the UK to be given funds to help revive and restore them. The grant is being used in Peterborough for high level fire safety glazing to the tower and access work to clerestory and roof voids.
