The following will run in chronological order with very little deviation, though London has often roadworks or pipe fixing. The area around Oxford St especially in the summer is intensely busy. There is to be a short bus journey with a meet up at Marble Arch to take us through the last section of the Pilgrimage. There is to be at least 3/4 of an hour spent in The Penderel’s Oak, the historic pub choice for lunch.
