The Road to Canterbury: A Modern Pilgrimage

9780006276937: The Road to Canterbury: A Modern Pilgrimage

This work is a personal account of Shirley du Boulay's journey along the Pilgrim's Way, which runs from Winchester to Canterbury. She walked the 120 miles in ten days, and a chapter is devoted to each of the days. A further four chapters introduce the theme of pilgrimage, the route itself, the object of this particular route (the shrine of Thomas Becket) and its history, and the preparation. Shirley draws many parallels between inner and outer journeys, and contrasts the modern "home counties" with the countryside of the middle ages.
