This is the final of four posts I've done about my holiday in Kent. To see the others follow the links at the end of the post.
It's a beautiful building filled with amazing medieval architecture and so many wonderful stained glass windows.
There are in places wall paintings, which are very old art, superbly preserved for everyone to see and enjoy.
This candle marks the place of the altar which was laid to commemorate Thomas Beckett, the Archbishop who was murdered in his place of work. When the Reformation came and Henry VIII had a lot of the work torn down the altar was removed, a candle has been burning on the spot pretty much ever since.
Of course there's grafitti, some of it's really old, this one from 1704 was the oldest we could find hence the picture, but there's probably older grafitti which hasn't been dated.
This was my favourite window in the building, and I don't really feel like my picture's done it justice.
I'm linking up to Tuesday Tips & Pics @ Live.Love.Travel only a day late.
