Meet : Blackfriars Station North Side
Ends: Guildhall Art Gallery, Gresham Street
Duration: 2 hours

The walk outlines the events that lead to the Barons turning against their King, who had proved less than able to retain his territories in France and was taxing the country to debt. King John's reluctance to parly with his Barons led to the meeting at Running Meadows where he was left in no doubt that he had to seal the document which became the Magna Carta the alternative - Civil War!
