Oranges and Lemons Sunday London Ride -
1 August 2021
Ride leader: Titus.
We all remember the nursery rhyme Oranges and Lemons from our childhood. The origins of the folk song goes back centuries with various modifications over the years, the majority in the 19thCentury. Does it secretly refer to the Henry VIII views on marriage and his six wives or various execution sites?
Join me for a genteel ride of between 15 and 20 miles visiting the various churches referred to and, who knows, a bell or two along the way. We'll find out about their history and context before retiring to Russell Square for refreshments.
Starts at Hyde Park Corner at 9.30am, finishes at Russell Square early afternoon.
Registration will open nearer the date.
