The Old Way to Canterbury is a lost pilgrimage route, rediscovered from Britain’s oldest road map – the Gough map, dated c. 1360. For over two centuries, this was the most accurate map of Britain that shows overland routes. But in nearly 3000 miles of roads, the Gough map only shows one path to Canterbury. And it is not the one you might think.
Will’s 90 minute micro pilgrimage will travel from Southampton’s mother church of St Mary’s visiting various Pilgrim sites and arriving at God’s House Tower for a song based arrival ritual and some Pilgrim’s Dole. Will has been pioneering new directions for British pilgrimage since 2004. Co-founder of the British Pilgrim Trust, Author and Wandering Minstrel, Will has taken British pilgrimage from BBC1 to World Service to Vogue Magazine.
Walk & Talk starting at 2pm from St Mary’s Church, Southampton.
