Having passed through a time warp and unable to return, Sir Gawain travels Britain in search of a way back. In the mean time, on his journey, he re-acquaints himself with the Britain he once knew and writes now 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.
Be they ancient churches, forgotten hollow ways, strip field systems, deserted towns or modern settlements which still bear the imprint of mediaeval times, the places Sir Gawain visits are peopled with ghosts of past times.
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…
