Easter Leg

Easter Leg next takes place 10-12 April 2020

Easter Leg is a one-day walking pilgrimage of around 12 miles, passing through the north Norfolk countryside from Wells-next-the Sea through Wighton, Binham and Walsingham.

We meet up in Walsingham on Thursday Evening to celebrate Mass of the Last Supper sharing the liturgy with the local community. This is followed by a short business meeting and time for a drink and to socialise, welcoming new pilgrims and renewing friendships. There are no strangers here just friends we haven't yet met.

Good Friday morning we meet again in Wells the starting point of our walk of Witness carrying a large wooden cross, a visible sign of our purpose.

At regular intervals we pause for a reflection on a chosen theme of the day, these are prepared by our pilgrims and really give very different approaches to the topics and stimulate our minds.

One of our stops is the beautiful Binham Priory where we have a short time to look round before continuing to our lunch stop, giving us more time to socialise and relax.

We wend our way through the countryside talking and singing a variety of songs and hymns, new and old reflecting the wide age range of our leg, from young children to you-shouldn't-really-ask (or the sky's the limit).

On arrival at the Slipper Chapel we meet up with all the other Legs of Student Cross, greeting old friends and looking forward to the wonderful rich, musical Liturgies cumulating with the Celebration of Easter.

Walkers on Easter Leg arrange their own accommodation and travel. The fee goes towards the cost of two main meals, the Chaplin, the GOD fund and other general leg expenses.

Not sure? Dip your toe in the water - give it a try, you won't be disappointed, you'll probably want more. Any questions don't hesitate to get in touch.
