THE BOMBING OF SHERBORNE

Guided tour lead by local Blue Badge Guide Paul Birbeck. Meet outside Sherborne Abbey. A 21/2 hour walk.

Route: a guided tour of the key locations, supported by photographs of the locations after the bombing and accounts from survivors who I interviewed earlier this year. Half Moon Street to Horsecastles –  corner South Street, up Cheap Street to Hound Street, down Newland to Tinneys Lane, back up Newland to top Cheap Street along Abbey Road to Sherborne School Courts. Front Abbey. See my article on the Sherborne Bombing in the September addition of The Conduit. Approximately 3 miles at a gentle walking pace.

Clients are required to follow any Covid procedures when visiting the school grounds.

Good walking shoes and appropriate outdoor clothing recommended. The Cross Keys pub will offer a 10% discount on non-alcoholic drinks to clients at the end of the walk.
