The COP26 Norfolk Tributary Relay starts off from Great Yarmouth this morning. Day 1 of a 9 day pilgrimage across the heart of Norfolk. They will be following the Walsingham Way from Great Yarmouth to Swanton Morley, before detouring to Dereham and thence, via Litcham, to Lynn.
On this wet and windy 8th May thoughts of a summer pilgrimage come to mind.
……….. the Wherryman’s Way may be walked as a pilgrim path in its own right, tracing Christianity’s development from 7th Century mission stations on the coast to the modern cathedral city Mother Julian called home.
We look forward to welcoming visitors to the Walsingham Way when it is safe to travel. For the time being:
Stay Home – Protect the NHS – Save Lives
In the meantime use these pages to travel in heart and mind, through the heart of Norfolk, to England’s Nazareth. A warm welcome awaits. For the time being stay local, keep safe and discover pilgrim paths where you live. Are there places you can walk in or to?
Of personal, local, or national historical importance.
To “Consider the birds of the air and the flowers of the field’;
Walk by the waterside
Somewhere above thehurlyburly.
Perhaps, with a view.
To watch the sunrise and set,
Or contemplate the night sky,
That give a perspective on life.
Where prayer has been valid’
Thin places that bring you close to the mystery some call God.
