Canterbury Tuck Shop

Please scroll down, if necessary, for a commentary ...

Close to the cathedral is this shop which used to be the King's School tuck-shop, now an arts and bookshop. It was built in the 17th Century and has an alarming list so that the verticals are anything but. Inside it has now been buttressed by a steel cage but the exterior remains decoratively and confusingly out-of-true. The doorway itself I believe is a later addition and the lean has been purposely accentuated.
