Crossbones Graveyard The Goose & The Garden History Talk
This event has now passed
Crossbones Graveyard is a unique place of peace and tranquility nestled in the heart of Bankside. It holds a deep cultural, historical and spiritual significance as it tells the history of London as seen from the bottom up.
As well as holding the mortal remains of 15,000 women, children and men, it also carries the memory of the Winchester Geese, the women who worked in the brothels and “stews” of the medieval Liberty of the Clink. Licensed by the Church to ply their prostitute trade but denied a Christian burial.
Join Jennifer Cooper, the Madam of Ceremonies at the Crossbones Vigil to Honour the Outcast, for a special tour of this fascinating garden of remembrance sharing stories of history, hypocrisy, poverty, riches, activism, spirituality and transformation!
Very Short Tours, only one hour, starting Over There (outside the Gates) and concluding Over ‘Ere (inside the Garden).
The tour is running on May 25th and June 1st from 12-1pm and June 8th and 15th from 5-6pm. Click here for more information and to book your free ticket.
