Canterbury Cathedral: the Cloisters.
Canterbury Cathedral: the Cloisters.
On the ceiling of the Cloisters are bosses that bear the arms of individuals who have donated money to the construction and decoration of the Cathedral. Most of these were put in place in the fifteenth century but were restored beginning in 1935 by the Friends of Canterbury Cathedral and completed three years later. There have been special additions to these arms since that time and those include, George VI, Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mum, the present Queen, Elizabeth II, Her Sister, Princess Margaret and The Dowager Queen Mary. Later, the arms of Archbishop Robert Runcie and Pope John Paul II and Prince Charles were added to celebrate the Papal visit on the 29th May, 1982.
