About Sir Gawain’s World

Image of Michael Smith, author of Sir Gawain's WorldHaving passed through a time warp and unable to return, Sir Gawain re-acquaints himself with the Britain he once knew and writes in the alliterative style he helped make famous…

Sir Gawain’s World is a journey through mediaeval Britain. Astride his strusty steed, le Gringalet (a 1958 Francis Barnett motorcycle), Sir Gawain follows the quiet paths and hollow ways to some of Britain’s secret gems.

Join Sir Gawain on his journey and share with him some of this country’s most intimate history – and do feel free to comment and to share your own experiences of this magical country too…

  2. Ah. I have found another romanticist without his head in the clouds. A rare breed and one to keep tabs on. I was looking for anything on Hertfordshire and here we are- Sir Gawain. I’m honored AND humbled. I’ll be back… to check out your info on Welsh history.
    Cheers ! Evelyn, The Castle Lady
