Canterbury West looking east

When I got of the train at Canterbury West I found the platform was thronged with bishops. That's what you are entitled to expect when you arrive for a stay in the city.

It turned out that were coming away from the consecration of Rachel Treweek as Bishop of Gloucester. She had become the most senior woman bishop in the Church of England.

Despite being rather a High atheist, I thoroughly approve of women bishops.

There is a further curiosity about the Canterbury stations. One is located on the northern edge of the city centre; the other on its southern edge.

East is barely east of West, and West is barely west of East.
