Canterbury Cathedral

Canterbury, in Kent, has been the seat of the spiritual head of the Church of England
for many centuries. It is also well known for its medieval tombs of royal parsonages, such as King Henry IV and Edward the Black Prince.

KL and I decided to spend a day here. Posted by Hello

The interiors of the cathedral, with St.Augustine's Chair dimly lit in the background was where the archbishops were enthroned in the 13th Century.

The stained window within Jesus Chapel, depicts the cruxification. The crowned letter 'M' and 'I' on the on ceiling are the initials of Jesus and Mary in Latin. Posted by Hello
