Desktop Pilgrimage 2021 | Day 8

The journey starts where we stopped on Day 7, The Wrong Un pub, in Bexleyheath.

Where we go

  1. the M25
  2. quite a few suburban back-roads
  3. a pathway between fields, with horses
  4. a Bed & Breakfast in Swanley

Topics, stories

  • The author Mary Monro tells us how she recreated the 1200-mile journey her father had taken in China, during WW2, and turned it into this book.

Though there were long stretches of “walking” through suburbs and along A-roads, this was the day we crossed the M25 and felt we had really encountered countryside.
