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…
