We shall be returning to Walsingham this year, 6th-8th October and would be delighted if members can join us. The Shrine at Walsingham was built in 1061 as a memorial to the Annunciation, and was destroyed during the Reformation. In 1934, the restored Slipper Chapel re-opened as the RC National Shrine to our Lady and is known as ‘England’s Nazareth’. We will be staying in the RC guesthouse in the village (Elmham House), about a mile from the Shrine – the Slipper Chapel was where footwear was removed and the last mile (the Holy Mile) was walked barefoot by pilgrims. An alternative route on a quieter path has been called ‘Pilgrim’s Way’ and will feature in our pilgrimage.
Transport will be available for those travelling from London and we will also be making a stop at Ely train station for those who would like to join us in Cambridgeshire. The pilgrimage costs £120 including accommodation, meals and chaplaincy. If you will be travelling from London with us then please contact us about travel charges: the more people who travel with us, the lower the price! So, if you do wish to attend and know of anyone who would also like to come, then do please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org A booking form is available on the website.
