Inverness is a city located in the Scottish Highlands and is the administrative centre of the Highland council area. The name means "Mouth of the River Ness" and the city lies where the River Ness, which flows from the nearby Loch Ness, enters the Moray Firth. Culloden Moor lies nearby, and was the site of the Battle of Culloden in 1746, which ended the Jacobite Rising of 1745–1746. The city centre lies on the east bank of the River Ness and is linked to the opposite bank by three road bridges: Ness Bridge, Friars Bridge and the Black (or Waterloo) Bridge. There is also a footbridge, the Greig Street Bridge, which connects to the two banks.
Inverness has good transport links. There is a direct link to the Black Isle across the Moray Firth by the Kessock Bridge and the city's railway station provides passengers with links to many towns and cities across Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom including Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Aberdeen and Thurso. Inverness also has an airport, located about 10 miles from the city, and provides scheduled flights to London, Manchester, Belfast and to many other cities across the UK.
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.
