Canterbury cathedral – November 2013

The highlight of our brief visit to Canterbury was our visit to Canterbury Cathedral. We were, unfortunately, confined by the two hour time limit on parking. It was very pleasant to be allowed to take photographs inside – a practice that is discouraged in some houses of worship for the reason, I am sure, that it encourages the purchase of postcards. The medieval stained glass is wonderful and we were both overwhelmed by the simple beauty and magnificence of the building.

I have this habit of looking up wherever I am and was rewarded by the magnificence of this construction.
