For the first time in a decade, members of Southwark Cathedral's congregation have taken part in the tradition of 'beating the bounds' of the parish.
Rogationtide processions have taken place in England since the 8th century, combining prayers for God's blessing on farm crops with preserving the collective memory of parish boundaries and passing that local knowledge on to the next generation.
The procession paused in the community garden in Melior Street where prayers were said for the work of the Manna Centre.
After prayers in Snowsfields for Guy's Hospital and St Hugh's Church, the procession made its way across the Marlborough Sports Garden to Cathedral School before pausing for a picnic lunch in All Hallows Garden.
