Essex Leg next takes place
13-21 April 2019
Friendship, ferries, the countryside,
food and God are just some of the highlights of Essex Leg.
The Leg tends to be one of the smaller Student Cross Legs and so is one of the more companionable groups.
Great friendships are made and a real sense of togetherness develops
during the week. Essex Leg tends to be
one of the more diverse groups – our current walkers include
Catholics, Anglicans and Methodists.
We begin our 127-mile pilgrimage in Colchester and have one of the
most varied and scenic routes to Walsingham, including two boat
trips. The rest of our walk progresses along a variety of scenic
routes, from the beach at Felixstowe to the quiet country lanes of
Norfolk, passing by small villages and beautiful churches. We stop at some pubs en route, including options to go to a pub in
the evening on some days. (For this reason Essex Leg is unable to
take pilgrims aged under 18).
Joyful song, prayer and worship, tears and laughter, beautiful
scenery, and tea and cakes are all set alongside Essex Leg’s walk
with Jesus during Holy Week. Even if you only do it once (and we’re
pretty sure you will want to do it more than once), you’ll have an
experience you’ll never forget. We hope to see you on Essex Leg at
