A moment that changed me: Ken Follett – killing time, I found the inspiration for my most successful novel

I was brought up in a puritanical religious sect but a chance visit to Peterborough cathedral began a lifelong interest in these wonderful buildings.

I had finished my interview, and had an hour to wait until the next train back to London, so, having nothing to do, I went to look at Peterborough Cathedral.
