Later this year, you will be able to watch the Freemen (and women) of the City of London exercise their ancient right to drive sheep across London Bridge.

Organised by the Worshipful Company of Woolmen, for a suitable contribution, a Freeman or friend of a Freeman can take a flock of sheep across the bridge of ancient fame.

And we less free men can watch them do it.

The sheep drive takes place every half-hour on Sunday 24th September 2017 between 10am-5pm.

The Worshipful Company of Woolmen

Proceeds will be divided between the Lord Mayor’s Appeal and The Worshipful Company of Woolmen’s charitable trust.

Expect around 20 sheep, and based on last time this was done, at least 600 freemen to herd them back and forth.

There will also be a woolly fair around Monument, which will include a number of craft market stalls, and a tented pavilion showing the story of wool.
