Canterbury. We are all now well met.

Canterbury. A quite nice town well looked after. A bit like Santiago de Compostela and for the same reasons it has not lacked for cash for repairs.
We visit the cathedral to get our credential and can get in free as pilgrims. But pay anyway. There are an aweful lot of repairs being done it seems fair.
In the grounds there is a plane tree with a viral infection. Plantanusxhispanica.
The cathedral is in full flood of renovation but even so the sense of age comes through especially in the crypt. There are quantities of excellent detailed stone work and some of theost beautiful stained glass windows I have seen. There are a number of friendly guide people who know a lot about the place including stories of the 5 murdered archbishops. Yes there were more just Thomas a Becket.
