Speaking as a Mackem, I hope this will result in some significant investment in the St. Peter's site. A new archaeological survey of the area within and around the church should be conducted to complement Professor Cramp's investigations of the Seventies. We also need investment in preserving the church for the future; the carvings on the Saxon pillars are almost invisible these days.
If we want the kudos associated with World Heritage Status then we need to demonstrate the moral responsibility and care that goes with it.
