WALSINGHAM PILGRIMAGE

From the beginning of time some places have been regarded as especially holy; places of mystery and atmosphere. Walsingham has been such a place for almost a thousand years since Richeldis de Faverches was inspired by Mary to build a Shrine in perpetual memorial of the Annunciation.

One of the greatest Shrines in Medieval Christendom until the original Shrine was destroyed at the Reformation.

After nearly four hundred years, the 20th century saw the restoration of pilgrimage to Walsingham as a regular feature of Christian life in these islands, and indeed beyond.

The Parish of St Martin has held a long and faithful association with the Shrine and presently two pilgrimages are made from the parish each year.  


The Cell or Society of Our Lady of Walsingham meet each month to pray and socialise.
