These days, comparing quotes is something that is important for most things, whether it be a bar of soap or a house, and public relations is really not much different.

Peterborough is a cathedral city based in the north of Cambridgeshire in the east of England. Due to the flat terrain of east Anglia, it lies low and close to sea level, and indeed some levels are below sea level. the Fens (a naturally boggy area) are at the east of the city and were drained centuries ago for agriculture. Peterborough has had human settlements going back to the Bronze Age and was originally called ‘Medesganstede’ by the Angles in the 10th century. This was due to the monk Seaxwulf founding a monastery in the city.
The name changed to ‘Burgh’ around the 12th century when an abbot build a defensive wall around the abbey. During the civil war years (1642 – 1651) it was divided, between supporting the King, and support for the Parliamentarian cause. Peterborough really grew during the 1840’s when the railway’s came, and the city started to expand as new industry grew in the area, becoming a centre for brick manufacture. These days, it is a growing economy as the service industry boosts jobs, such as schools and hospitals. The current population according to council figures is around 80,000.
