The cathedral city of Gloucester is the county town of Gloucestershire and lies very close to the border with Wales. The city is roughly 30 miles to the north east of Bristol and 45 miles to the south west of Birmingham. Gloucester lies on the banks of the River Severn and is bounded by the Cotswolds to the east, the Forest of Dean to the west and the Malvern Hills to the north. Interestingly Gloucester is also a port city being linked to the Severn Estuary by the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal. Following renovation the city's former wharfs and warehouses form a public open space, are home to the National Waterways Museum and a number of apartments, shops and bars.
Gloucester Cathedral is in the north of the city close to the river and originates in the foundation of an abbey dedicated to St Peter in 681. The cathedral is the burial place of King Edward II and its cloisters were used for some scenes in some of the Harry Potter movies.
Gloucester's main theatre is the Guildhall which hosts a large and diverse number of entertainments including live music, dance sessions, a cinema, bar, cafe and art gallery.
Located in the county of Cambridgeshire in the east of England, the city of Peterborough is around 70 miles to the north of London. The city is surrounded by vast clay deposits which enabled it to become a mass producer of bricks for much of the 20th century. Brick making had been a local craft since the early 19th century but during the 1890's, following successful experimentation with harder clays, a more efficient process emerged which further enhanced the region's brick making trade.
The River Nene, made navigable from the port at Wisbech to Northampton by 1761, passes through the city centre and a green viaduct carries the railway over the river. It was built in 1847 by Lewis Cubitt, who was more famous for his bridges in Australia, India and South America.
The Peterborough Millennium Green Wheel is a 50-mile network of cycleways, footpaths and bridleways which provide safe routes around the city with radiating spokes connecting to the city centre. The project has also created a sculpture trail, which provides functional, landscape artworks along the Green Wheel route and a Living Landmarks project involving the local community in the creation of local landscape features such as mini woodlands, ponds and hedgerows.
