The Pilgrims' Way: Fact & Fiction of an Ancient Trackway

First Published by The History Press 2011

Winding its way from Winchester to Canterbury, through the counties of Hampshire, Surrey and Kent, can be found one of England's most ancient and enigmatic trackways.  From the Neolithic to the Victorian pilgrimists, Derek Bright brings together a mass of evidence and re-evaluates how we should view this ancient trackway.  Using evidence of roadside crime, prohibitive legislation and the everyday hazards facing wayfarers, he explores how this fascinating routeway has served travellers over time.
Extensively illustrated with original photography by Richard Brown.
