Pilgrims’ Way guide published today

Publication day for Cicerone’s Walking The Pilgrims’ Way has been rainy. But that is appropriate since Chaucer wrote about April showers.

It has been great fun marking the book’s launch by visiting the London starting point.

First to Talbot Yard where a blue plaque on the site of The Tabard from where one early spring morning Chaucer’s characters set out in The Canterbury Tales.

Then a short walk through Borough Market to Southwark Cathedral for a celebratory lunch.

The good news is that today the cathedral shop has sold all its stock of The Pilgrims’ Way and  more have been ordered.

A good sign I hope for interest in the Canterbury pilgrimage.
