Take a look at nine breath-taking pictures of Canterbury taken by members of the the Canterbury Resident’s Facebook group.
Canterbury Resident’s Facebook group has over 10,730 members that share what they love (and hate) about this city. We’ve pulled together nine images, taken in the past year, from the group’s members that we feel best show off our stunning city.
