On Friday 16 November I shall be giving talk about walking the Pilgrims’ Way at The Royal Oak in Southwark.
The Royal Oak, in Southwark’s Tabard Street behind St George the Martyr Church, is the first pub on the ancient route after Borough High Street and can claim an interesting heritage.
The illustrated talk, Walking the Pilgrims’ Way from London, begins at 7pm and will be followed by refreshments.
The London to Canterbury route starting in Southwark is the one known to Geoffrey Chaucer.
The alternative route starts in Winchester and dovetails in Kent with the more famous London route.
We shall dwell on the interesting places in Borough and the Old Kent Road before the looking at the countryside beyond.
All are very welcome to the special evening which marks the publication of an updated version of the guide.
TALK: Friday 16 November, 6.30pm for 7pm, at The Royal Oak 44 Tabard Street, London SE1 4JU.
Admission is free but booking is essential: pilgrimsway.eventbrite.co.uk
