Essex Leg

Essex Leg next takes place 13-21 April 2019

Essex leg arrive at a stop 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 Easter.
