Canterbury Cathedral is the oldest and best known of Christian churches in England. It was first founded in the year 597, and was modified and extended several times. Here is the view from the west gate.
and the view from the cloisters
this is the pulpit

Uh, even cathedrals need to be cleaned and vacuumed . . . .

A pivotal moment in the history of Canterbury cathedral was the murder of Thomas Becket in 1170 by knights of King Henry II. The sculpture below is part of a shrine to Thomas who was canonized shortly after his martyrdom.
The ghostly shadow on this pillar in the crypt is said to represent the murdered Thomas . .
