Peterborough Cathedral precinct wall, Peterborough - Peterborough, City of (UA)

Parts of the medieval precinct wall of the Cathedral are vulnerable to water penetration and stone decay, and in some places have suffered from later stone and brick re-facings. Repair to those parts of the precinct wall within the control of the Dean and Chapter has been progressed but other parts still remain in poor condition.
