Driftwood cross at Southwark Cathedral

Today is the start of Holy Week and this holiday walkers may like to pause at Southwark Cathedral where a cross has been erected in the churchyard on the south side.

It stands where the Christmas Tree is found in December. The cross is large like the original and has a crossbar made from wood found downstream by the Isle of Dogs. The timber is thought to have been part of  a boat.

The cathedral’s Refectory in the courtyard by the Thames Path continues to be a good refreshment stop.
