Aerial Force in Peterborough
Aerial Force’s coverage extends to the cathedral city of Peterborough, a city well-known to most of England’s population. Located in Cambridgeshire, towards the east of the British Isles, the city has a large population which was over 180,000 in 2011. Aerial Force are attempting to provide a service to the majority of England’s population, and a good sized portion of this is taken up when we take on large cities similar to Peterborough in size.
Peterborough’s history extends back as far as the bronze age, as an ancient settlement was found dating back to that period of time. When the Romans arrived in Britain, they made Peterborough a ‘fortified garrison town’ (during the 1st century AD) and this signifies Peterborough’s importance to British history.
During the civil war, the town was divided in terms of its loyalties. It did eventually become a market town before transforming into an industrial centre via the opening of the Great Northern Railway which ran from York to London, incorporating Peterborough along its route. And – as with many cities and towns around England – the railway meant many positive things for the city of Peterborough. During the 19th century, the city expanded rapidly and the population increased exponentially. Peterborough became known as an industrial centre for brick manufacture; Peterborough really placed itself on the map during this era!
World War two stunted the growth of many British cities, and Peterborough did not manage to expand during the period of destruction it lasted for. In fact, the slump lasted as long as 1960s when Peterborough was awarded ‘New Town’ status which resulted in a complete change to the city’s fortunes. This occurred in 1967 as Peterborough soaked up London’s overspill and Peterborough, as a result, rapidly grew in size.
During the period in between 1971 and 1991, Peterborough’s population rose by over 45% – and as the years have progressed, the manufacturing industry is no longer the city’s main form of industry. Most of the new jobs that have become available in Peterborough are within the financial services and distribution sectors of industry.
Peterborough has had many famous people included among its residents, including the presenter Jake Humphrey, and footballer David Bentley. In comedy, Ernie Wise lived in Peterborough and in the world of music, JLS’s Aston Merrygold and Gizz Butt of the Prodigy both came from Peterborough.
Since that time, Peterborough has enjoyed a steady rise in its population and, therefore, the number of houses that have been built. There are further plans to expand Peterborough’s population and housing in the upcoming years, and the future looks very bright for the city.

When residents and visitors explore the outdoor attractions, it is hard for the Peterborough Cathedral to go un-noticed.
