In the 1980s, Terry Waite was the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Assistant for Anglican Communion Affairs under Robert Runcie, and devoted himself to the task of securing the release of John McCarthy and his fellow Lebanon hostages. In January 1987 he was kidnapped himself in Beirut and held for five years, four in solitary confinement. During his time in captivity Terry kept mentally alive by writing in his head. In this talk, he will discuss this process and the power of solitude in his own and other people’s lives.

‘The city of Wintoncester, that fine old city, aforetime capital of Wessex, lay amidst its convex and concave downlands in all the brightness and warmth of a July morning.’
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles
‘Blood flowed out of the butchers’ shops into the street, and fat rats dodged between the feet of the people who came to buy.’
Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth
The walk starts outside the Tourist Information Centre. Tickets should be booked in advance through the Cathedral Box Office. The walk lasts for approx. 90 minutes.
