Pardesiya, Israel * 25px (Image:Flag of the United Kingdom.svg) Peterborough, United Kingdom He was born at Peakirk near Peterborough in Northamptonshire, and died at Milton (Milton, Northamptonshire) in the same county.

In February 1982 Jones was involved in a serious car accident while driving home after a gig at Glossop Folk Club. Jones' car ran into a lorry pulling out of "Whittlesea brickworks" on the road between Peterborough and March (March, Cambridgeshire) in Cambridgeshire. He suffered very serious injuries, including many broken bones and brain damage, and required intensive care treatment and hospitalisation for a total of eight months.

1945 PLACE OF BIRTH Peterborough, England DATE OF DEATH The tower is constructed of stone rubble (Rubble masonry) and rendered on the outside, and is decorated with vertical limestone pilaster strips and strapwork. At the corners of the tower, the walls are strengthened by long vertical quoin (Quoin (architecture)) stones bedded on horizontal slabs, and hence is termed ''long and short work''. The way in which the tower is decorated is unique to Anglo-Saxon

and throughout the Middle Ages to build churches and cathedrals including Peterborough and Ely (Ely, Cambridgeshire). It is evident that Anglo-Saxon churches with long and short work and pilaster strips are distributed throughout England where this type of limestone was available, and in East Anglia where the stone was transported.

The local topography is flat and low-lying, and in some places lies below sea level, for example in the Fens that lie to the east of Peterborough. Human settlement in the area began before the Bronze Age, as can be seen at the Flag Fen archaeological site to the east of the current city centre also with evidence of Roman (Ancient Rome) occupation. The Anglo-Saxon (History of Anglo-Saxon England) period saw the establishment of a monastery, Medeshamstede, which later became Peterborough Cathedral. Peterborough was until 1965 part of Northamptonshire, although the city with its surrounding rural area was from medieval times administered separately as the Soke of Peterborough.

The population grew rapidly following the arrival of the railways in the 19th century, and Peterborough became an industrial centre, particularly noted for its brick manufacture. Following the Second World War (World War II), growth was limited until designation as a New Town (New towns in the United Kingdom) in the 1960s. Housing and population are expanding and a £1 billion regeneration of the city centre and immediately surrounding area is underway. In common with much of the United Kingdom, industrial employment has fallen, with a significant proportion of new jobs in financial services and distribution.
