Note the date!

Interested in history? Come with Auntie on a Catholic History Walk. Date: September 24th. Time: 6.30pm. Meeting Point: steps of Westminster Cathedral. This is the first in a series of Walks sponsored by Continuity. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for a walk of about 1-2 hours. We plan to finish in a pub. You'll learn about Westminster's history... the abbey founded by our last Saxon king before the Norman Conquest...the draining of the Thames marshes around Thorney Island... a cathedral built on the site of a former prison...a Royal escape on the horse ferry across the river...and more...
