George and I visited Canterbury on Tuesday as part of our visit to Kent. This house is near the cathedral and there is a quotation from Charles Dickens on the lintel `… a very old house bulging out over the road … leaning forward, trying to see who was passing on the narrow pavement below …` I figured if the house was in that state in Dickens` time it was not going to fall down any time soon!
We spent some time looking around Canterbury Cathedral – a lovely building. George told me he used to go there quite often when he was a boy. My last visit was in the 1950s and I remember wearing new shoes that rubbed blisters on my feet and we couldn`t find which car park where we had left the car. The Cathedral is a magnificent building and we could have spent much longer there but were constrained by the two-hour car parking limit.
