Travels in Southern England – St George’s Day in Pinner.

April 24, 2023

St George’s Day was never much of an event I have taken notice of.  The ancient hero was of course celebrated in olden times and he is England’s patron saint so I suppose it is appropriate we English celebrate his day, after all Scotland has St Andrew’s Day, Wales St David’s Day and Ireland St Patrick’s Day.  In Pinner, North London, where I am staying, St George’s Day is a big event with a road closed off, so a wheelbarrow race can take place, street venders can set up their stalls and Morris Dancers can display their art (see photos below).
