Joshua Merrill
From Gatehouse to Cathedral: A Photographic Pilgrimage to Chaucerian Landmarks
"These pictures, taken between July 1996 and March 1998, make a photographic pilgrimage to various sites that Chaucer would have seen or been associated with in his lifetime, ending with the destination of his pilgrims, Canterbury Cathedral. They show details which link to larger 20-40k, full-frame photographs."

Peter Collinson
The Canterbury Tour
"The tour contains 500 pages, each with a photo and some text. The pages are paired, so a view in one direction is complemented by the view 'behind you.' Pairing means that you can walk to one end of the city, turn round and walk back again. You can turn right and left, taking different routes to explore the city. You will also find many archaeological reports from the Canterbury Archaeological Trust. Look for the button showing a small trowel."
