Oswald Fletcher. “Dark Entry. Canterbury.” Late 19th century. Etching. 6 1/2 x 4 1/2. Signed and titled in pencil. Very good condition.
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!
