Desktop Pilgrimage 2021 | Day 12

In which we start where we stopped on Day 11, Rochester Cathedral.

Where we go

  1. Back along the Medway, through Borstal

  3. Aylesford Priory

  • How much the atmosphere changed yesterday, with lots of people, lots of strangers
  • Charles Dickens, and his relationship with the Medway towns
  • Were these the marshes featured in Great Expectations?
  • How beautiful the priory is
  • A reading from the BPT guide, about St Simon (whose skull is in the reliquary at the priory)
