Fassi & R.S. French - Canterbury

Fassi and R.S. French at work on a building site near Canterbury Cathedral

Canterbury (England) - 28th September. A vehicle from the company R.S. French fitted with a Fassi F800RA crane was used today on a building site behind Canterbury Cathedral, the first cathedral in English history. Canterbury Cathedral is the first important example of English Gothic architecture. The original building dates as far back as the 7th century AD, and was destroyed and rebuilt various times.
In 1147 the cathedral was rebuilt after it was once again almost completely destroyed by a fire, and thus became the first Gothic cathedral in England, a splendid building with a double-cross floor plan and three naves, striking above all for its length: 168 metres.
