Sutton Valence walk

The place belies its sober name with some astonishing exhibits: a silver Saxon portable sundial; a whodunit display on the life and still-perplexing death of Canterbury-born playwright and early Shakespeare rival Christopher Marlowe; a three-wall tapestry depicting the life-story and, yes, death-story of Thomas Becket. Do we have a patron saint of pedestrians? Fifty yards on is The Old Buttermarket, with Burgate to the right, Sun Street to the left and the precincts of the cathedral tantalisingly visible through the arch of the formidable gatehouse.

If the kingdom boasts a finer confluence of medieval thoroughfares than this, it has been keeping very quiet about it this past millennium. Appearances in such a movie-star of a marketplace can be deceptive. It was christened Buttermarket a mere two centuries ago to replace the not so nice name of Bullstake, which came from the use of dogs to bait bulls in order to make their meat more tender. Although now within touching distance of the cathedral, defer this pleasure a little while longer by heading up Sun Street which, as it tends north, turns into Palace Street, then The Borough, then Northgate.

To gaze up at the intricate fan vaulting on the ceiling of its central tower, Bell Harry, is to court the mild hallucination of inverted vertigo. In height and spirit, this is a world away from the sombre area of the north-west transept, known bluntly as The Martyrdom.
