Canterbury Cathedral's medieval Gothic image survived centuries of religious discord, neglect and Georgian 'improvements'. From 1800, a new generation was re-inspired by the prevalent architectural and artistic 'Gothick' vogue. At this time, a passionately ambitious young architect, William Butterfield, created a Gothic missionary college in two years, and the Dean of Canterbury, who wanted the Cathedral to rival St Peter's, Rome, began the rolling repair programme continuing in today's Appeal. Priests, bishops and Gothic enthusiasts carried the style from there to parish churches, industrial cities and the colonies. With more than fifty illustrations, including a striking colour section, this book will delight lovers of Canterbury and of the Gothic style everywhere.
