Greenwich: St Alphege and Royal visit

The Archbishop of Canterbury sailed from Southwark to Greenwich today for a service marking the 1000th anniversary of the murder of his predecessor St Alphege.

Meanwhile many others, led by the Bishop of Woolwich and Dean of Southwark, walked the Thames Path via Deptford to Greenwich.

Greenwich’s St Alfege Church (different spelling) stands on the site of martyrdom.

These are momentous days for Greenwich which became  a Royal Borough this year.

The Queen will be there on Wednesday 25 April to see the restored Cutty Sark and open the Royal River exhibition at the National Maritime Museum.
