Members from Canterbury, Croydon and Lewes Soroptimist clubs walked 8.5 miles from Shepherdswell to Dover on May 26th. They had much better weather for the second stage of the Via Francigena but it still took five hours to complete the walk!
The clubs have now walked the entire way of the Via Francigena in England, from Canterbury to Dover! The next stage is from Calais to Wissant in France. Pilgrims can then walk across the north of France into Switzerland and down into Italy and finally to Rome, a total of 1800 kilometres.
