Fine craftsmen from medieval times to the Tudors and Stuarts have left their mark on Canterbury's streets and thoroughfares, from the pilgrim inns and medieval timber-framed houses to the striking Norman Cathedral in the city centre. This book examines the streets of Canterbury in an attempt to detail the history of the people and places contained within them and create a sense of the past here. Take a tour around Canterbury and discover the derivation of the old streets' names, how they have changes and the new routes created in this many-layered city. Canterbury Streets will surely delight all those who know the area as it was and those who live in the city today.
