Talk by William Redaway on Friday 26th April


We, at The Watershed RDA, were priviledged to listen to William Redaway talk on how he rode and led his horse, Strider, to the four corners of England and back visiting over 30 cathedrals on the way.

Cathedrals, as we all know, are in the middle of towns and he had to contend with many situations on his travels not least the trams in Sheffield city centre!! He was unable to take Strider through parts of London as the emergency sirens had just been recalibrated and the police horses had had to be retrained not to worry about them – this had taken the police two years so Strider didn’t stand a chance! 



William walked and rode for over 7 months and even when a serious saddle sore affected Strider he was determined not to give up. 


William told the story of his adventure with modesty, humour and under statement and illustrated it with wonderful slides. If you missed this talk it is well worth finding out when he is talking again as his ride was inspirational. Not only did he help raise funds for The Watershed RDA (over £300) but he has to date raised over £84,000 for Wormwood Scrubs RDA and The Family Holiday Association.


Thank you William and Strider for letting us share your adventure.
