Did you know Cambridge is in Peterboroughshire?

Bad ant bad ant
Whatcha gonna do

It is

#13

#14

it’s a bit of a… i mean it IS but to someone in Northamptonshire, Peterborough is definitely in Northamptonshire. It has delusions of grandeur, but it’s just a firm fact that the Four Shit Cities of Northants shall forever be linked


#15

Second best city in cambridgeshire behind ely, obviously


#16

Indeed. Big cathedral and an even bigger Tesco. Pure class.

the amount of utterly pissed purchases i made from that tesco in the wee hours are mind boggling.

Palmerston arms, hand and heart…
