Canterbury Cathedral Library and Archives

Canterbury Cathedral Library was one of those that I sort of got into but not enough to take any good photos or have a good look round.  We were looking round the Cathedral which is beautiful – a bit like York Minster but not as awesome as Durham Cathedral and spotted signs and a door to the Library.  So needless to say went in and then stood there gazing around.  It was only small and there were people in there looking at books and other materials.  Then a librarian came along and chatted to us and told us all about the Library and the Archives.  Nearly all the materials are held in closed stacks and then brought out on request for people to consult and refer to you.  They have a wide range of historical materials about the Cathedral and about Canterbury city.  You can make an appointment to use the Reading Room.
