St Oswald's Right Arm

About

Join Dr Johanna Dale as she explains why the legendary limb of this famous Northumbrian king was Peterborough Abbey's prized possession.

The Abbey acquired this relic in dubious circumstances but it was the main focus of the monastic community and a holy shrine attracting pilgrims which even included kings of England.

The arm disappeared in the great upheavals of the Reformation but the chapel of St Oswald remains as one of the highlights of any visitor's tour of Peterborough Cathedral.
