The Canterbury Cross

2 July 2020

Canterbury Tour Guide, Bob Collins has written a fascinating blog for Visit Canterbury on the Canterbury Cross.

"The Canterbury Cross is unique. The name of it comes from a bronze piece of Saxon jewellery found near St. George's church in 1867... Although it's less than three inches across, it's finely detailed with a triquetra pattern - a three-cornered knot. Symbolising the Christian Trinity, on each of its four curved arms."
