Canterbury Cathedral. Ruins of Infirmary. Infirmary Ruins. Since A.D. 597, when St. Augustine landed in Kent, the site on which Centerbury Cathedral stands has been occupied by a Christian church. The present edifice dates from 1070, when the old Saxon church was rebuilt by Bishop Lanfranc. Portions of the old monastic buildings are still in existence; for instance, the row of pillars marking the site of the Infirmary, with the more complete Infirmary Chapel (1135-6).
