Sheep drive over Southwark Bridge 26 September 2021

The Fletchers were delighted, as part of their 650 celebrations, to participate in this years Sheep Drive across Southwark Bridge.

Although only recently established as an annual event to raise money for the Lord Mayor's Charities, the right of Freemen of the City to drive their sheep over the Thames goes back into the mists of time.

Afterwards both sheep drivers and supporters enjoyed a delicious lunch in the Boot and Flogger in Southwark, one of London's oldest wine bars.
