In 2013, Peterborough’s Heritage Ambition was launched.  Its aim was to put the city’s wonderfully rich and diverse heritage and history well and truly on the map.  After the launch, hundreds of individuals, community groups, charities, businesses and heritage sites, pledged their support for the ambition, and out of this formed working groups to shape the celebration of the city’s stories.

Out of this, Our Journey was born.

Our Journey’s aim is for all residents of Peterborough to access, explore, understand, but ultimately enjoy the stories which make the city what it is today, establishing a strong sense of place and civic pride during 2018, a celebratory year, when Peterborough Cathedral marks its 900th anniversary.

Our Journey presents stories from the Big Bang to the present day in a digital format for everyone to enjoy both during this very special year and beyond.
