Waiting at Ashford for my last train of the day, I sent this tweet:
Must be careful not to get off at the station before Canterbury— Jonathan Calder (@lordbonkers) July 26, 2015
Lovers of the film A Canterbury Tale will recognise the reference. The action of the film is set in motion when Sergeant John Sweet (US Army) mistakenly gets off his train at the station before the city.
Shortly afterwards the Canterbury train arrived, I caught it and then this happened and I had to get off before Canterbury...
