Crossbones Walk

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A guided walk tracing the lost history of Crossbones, the outcasts' burial ground - its desecration, rediscovery and restoration as a garden of remembrance. We'll walk in a spiral, visiting The Mint, Red Cross Garden, St Mary Overie Dock, Winchester Palace, Southwark Cathedral and The Tabard Inn, to finish in the new garden at Crossbones.

Led by local writer and performer John Constable, who revealed the story of Crossbones in his book The Southwark Mysteries and became the driving force behind the campaign to establish a place to 'honour the outcast'.

The walk is presented by Friends of Crossbones with Bankside Open Spaces Trust and funded by Borough, Bankside & Walworth Community Council's Neighbourhoods Fund.
