Late 20th century
Walking boots of the Rev. Dr. Inderjit Bhogal, a retired minister of the Methodist Church with Sikh roots. In his words: "I am a walker. I have walked far and wide in these boots. The soles are practically worn out to a flat surface".
Inderjit Bhogal has worn these boots on long distance political protest marches in support of cultural understanding and on many interfaith pilgrimages. Rich in symbolism, the boots were the centrepiece of the Museum's landmark 'Leadership on a Journey' exhibition (2021), exploring Methodist leadership in the 21st century.
