Virtual Pilgrimage In A Day: to Winchester with the BPT

The British Pilgrimage Trust sent me its newsletter, containing a virtual pilgrimage around Winchester in one day.

You can see highlights on a BPT blog post, here. They include an online map of the route, and photos of real-life pilgrims wandering around:

The old jail
King Alfred memorial garden
The Abbey’s water source
William the Conqueror’s chapel royal
The cathedral
St Swithin’s shrine
Jane Austen’s memorial
Anthony Gormley’s statue in the flooded crypt
Winchester water meadows
The ancient alms houses
The 400 year old maze at St Catherine’s Hill
The river Itchen, leading to Southampton, and Europe beyond – the reason Winchester was England’s capital for as long as London has been (approx).
