The Cathedral Office,
12a Minster Precincts,


The site marked today with a gothic cross. It is reputed that she taught the local villagers the craft of pillow lace whilst here. Later she was removed to Buckden Palace (nr. St. Neots), and then a year later (fearing a revolt in favour of his popular queen) to Kimbolton Castle where she died in 1536 (both in Cambridgeshire). Katherine is buried in the north choir aisle at Peterborough Cathedral (Cambridgeshire).
