CHAS Notebook extensions have been 'on hold' for many months pending completion of stage 1 of the new Architectural section.  This is now available to all readers - simply click on the 'Architecture' green button at top right on the website home pages.

 

The new Section deals with the city’s architecture, giving examples of styles to be found in the locality and features associated with each style.  In all there are over 240 new pages, showing details for 25 styles and 235 features, all supported by 525 clickable coloured images.  Every example can be found in or around the city.

 

For several years now we've referred to the five examples of 'Baobab plane' trees located in the city.  A recent report to the CHAS website from Sadie Palmer shows that we've missed two examples - both at the St Gregory Music Centre.  Well spotted Sadie!

 

Meanwhile further developments to the website are in hand:

 

  • more street furniture

  • start of a new section aimed at making available out-of-date printed booklets on Canterbury's past as downloadable PDFs

  • new work on outlining the building stones used to create Canterbury cathedral - a start will be made on the floors of the cathedral

 

We'll keep you informed on progress.
