CANTERBURY'S TRIBUTES TO THE DEAD: THE COUNTY AND KING'S SCHOOL MEMORIAL

CANTERBURY'S TRIBUTES TO THE DEAD: THE COUNTY AND KING'S SCHOOL MEMORIAL

Canterbury has both its city and county memorials. The former stands on the site of the old Butter Market opposite the Christ Church Gate, and the Kent County Memorial (bottom) on the Bowling Green, within the cathedral precincts, taking the form of an Ypres Cross. Yet a third Cross (top) has been erected to the memory of the old boys of the famous King's School. This occupies a very favourable position opposite to the entrance of the Norman stairway that is one of the cathedral's most precious architectural relics.
