John Constable relates its desecration, rediscovery, and
current restoration as a public open space and garden of
remembrance. John is a local writer who first revealed the
Cross Bones story in his book The Southwark Mysteries and
was the driving force behind the campaign to establish a
place to 'honour the outcast'. The Cross Bones Walk takes
you round The Liberty of the Clink, its theatres, bear-pits,
prisons and brothels licensed by the Bishop of Winchester.
We finish at Cross Bones, the final resting place of the
'Winchester Geese'.
