A friend pointed me towards this book review on the Church Times website. Two recent books which have Canterbury as a common point. A book by Gail Simmons describing a journey along The Old Way - a newly 'rediscovered' route from Southampton to Canterbury. And another by Nick Dunn about walking part of the Via Francigena and the battlefields of northern France.
