A finely etched image of the famous ‘Dark Entry’ at Canterbury Cathedral.  This is a passage which connects the Cathedral with the Green Court.  According to legend, a servant girl, Nell Cook, is supposed to haunt this passage.  Nell was supposedly upset that a canon was having an affair and when the canon and his lover died of poisoned food, Nell was subsequently buried under the pavestones of the entryway!
