Photo of the Week--3/7/11

We traveled around England quite a bit during the summer of 2000, and Canterbury was a great place to visit. The historical cathedral, with the memorial to the matryrdom of Thomas a Becket; a Canterbury Tales attraction with re-creations of the 14th century; and this lovely building, one of my favorite kinds of places in the world: a library! We didn't see this style of building as often as you might think, because these lovely wooden facings are susceptible to fire damage. London suffered a huge fire in 1666, so there aren't many lovely wooden buildings like this any more. Just one more reason to enjoy our trip to Canterbury.
