An introduction to ‘The Old Way’ A Canterbury Pilgrimage beginning in Southampton by William Parsons, of the British Pilgrim Trust

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.
