Pld King's School Shop in Canterbury, England - built in 1647 - Looks like it's right out of Harry Potter's Diagon Alley! Tricky door to get through!

Canterbury Cathedral, Kent. This is where St. Thomas Becket is buried. He was killed by King Henry II's Knights, when they missinterpreted what Henry had said. Thomas was murdered in this Cathedral, where he had been Archbishop of Canterbury.

^<3^ her "Majesty" (pedunculate oak '1720'). Fairy tale oak tree considered to be the mightiest and finest of all ancient trees in Britain. She is also considered the thickest tree in Britain, her trunk 13ft across with a circumference of 40ft when measured at chest height. She is over 500 years old & is entirely hollow inside, as is very often the case with old oak trees. #MajestyOak #QuercusRobur #PedunculateOak #FredvillePark #Kent #Nonington #OakTree #EnglishOak #OaksNice
