Discover the lost history of Cross Bones, the burial ground for paupers and prostitutes in the heart of the Borough.
John Constable relates its desecration, rediscovery, and current restoration as a public open space and garden of remembrance.
John is a local writer who first revealed the Cross Bones story in his book The Southwark Mysteries and was the driving force behind the campaign to establish a place to 'honour the outcast'.
The Cross Bones Walk takes you round The Liberty of the Clink, its theatres, bear-pits, prisons and brothels licensed by the Bishop of Winchester. We finish at Cross Bones, the final resting place of the 'Winchester Geese'.
