An Unexpected Link

Not a web link at all, but a physical link to part of the Bevis story. On the ‘gates’ at the southern side of Watts Park, Southampton, a plaque has been placed commemorating the fact that part of that location was once the site of the medieval town’s leper hospital – a good long way north of the town itself.

The news of this plaque might serve as a reminder that when Bevis’s beloved Josian was abducted by the treacherous giant Ascupart she contrived to eat a herb that gave her the appearance of a leper. 

It is only a distant link, but given the reluctance of Southampton to take the Bevis story to its heart, we may be able to develop this.
