The Sheep Drive

Sunday 25th September 2022

London Bridge

Sharon and I decided to pass by the Sheep Drive after the music competition and watch some Freemen drive ‘their’ sheep over the bridge.

This charity event, organised by The Worshipful Company of Woolmen, celebrates a Freeman's ancient “right” to bring sheep to market over the Thames, toll free – and is all in aid of raising funds for The Woolmen Charity and The Lord Mayor's Appeal.

Close by, at The Monument to the Great Fire of London, was a Livery Fair, with stalls from several companies showcasing their trades and selling products, proceeds again destined for the Lord Majors Appeal. There was much interest from both the public and liveries – and good to connect again with several Masters after the August recess!
