|Where:||London, on London Bridge|
|When:||Sunday after 6th January|
The parishes of Southwark Cathedral (on the South bank ) and St Magnus the Martyr (on the North bank) meet in the middle of London Bridge, and each January the clergy of both churches process to this point and perform a short religious service during which a wooden cross is cast into the river. The custom has only been established during the twenty-first century but harks back to the ancient ceremony in the Orthodox church of throwing a cross into the waters on the Sunday after Epiphany.
In 2018 it will be on Sunday January 7th.
