Martyrs, model, Castle, Plaques and Aphra

AFTER THE LONG SLEEPY months of lockdown, the Society is experiencing a spring renaissance:

Under the guidance of our tireless Chair, Michael Steed, progress is being made on the Whitstable model of the original harbour terminus of the historic Crab and Winkle line.

Michael is also driving forward the campaign to commemorate ALL local martyrs (i.e., not just the Protestants burned during the reign of Mary I) killed for religious reasons during the Tudor period.

In accordance with the Society’s role as a hub for all projects wishing to bring the past into the present, it is delighted to have made contact with the group seeking to open Canterbury’s neglected Castle to visitors.


Our link with the A is for Aphra campaign has already resulted in a considerable filling of the donations thermometer – take a look at the Donations page.

Vice-chair Stewart Ross will shortly be meeting with the Canterbury Society’s working group on a Blue Plaque scheme for the city.

If any member would like to help with any of the above, please get in touch via our contact page.
