Canterbury Cathedral, UK Easter Egg - Rude Lady
At the main gate to Canterbury Cathedral there is a carved arch-way. Look at the lowest level of the arch and you should see three rows on which are carved leaves. Take a close look at the exact center of the top row. You should be able to see a naked woman lying supine, head thrown back in ecstasy. Her genitalia are very pronounced.
The story goes that the church were trying to get out of paying what was due the stonemason that was working on the arch-way. He finally accepted a payment lower than the agreed, but got his revenge by putting in this rudest of carvings.
