One of our regions historic Cathedrals has been awarded £2,464,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The money will pay for improvements to enhance its visitor experience.
It is all part of the "Peterborough 900" project which aims to help the Cathedral play a bigger part in city life. The Cathedral is due to celebrate its 900th anniversary in 2018.
The Very Reverend Charles Taylor, Dean of Peterborough explains what the funding will go towards.

The Heritage Lottery Fund's investment will help conserve both this beautiful building and unlock its stories for future generations to enjoy.
There were celebrations as the funding was announced. It took the staff two years to prepare the bid.
