Canterbury: tomb of the Black Prince. That's his arming coat hanging high over the tomb; also a coat of arms. The coupled columns confirm the location.

I seem to recall that the Black Prince's coat - how it was constructed and the making, by textile experts, of a modern reconstruction -- was the subject of a recent BBC tv programme in the series "A Stitch in Time". I will look up the details and post them shortly.

A Stitch in Time Series 01 Episode 05 "The Black Prince". 29 minutes total. Available on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/xy-uMO4BvbA. Part of the episode is about the physical and social function of this armour and what it is like to wear it, and part about the process of reconstructing the Prince's jupon (the coat). Apparently in his will, "the Prince asked to have his military jupon hung above his tomb". As in the HEIR image above.
