Wells Leg - all age
Wells Leg next takes place 14-21
Welcome to our family pilgrimage for Easter. We are based in the
Youth Hostel at Wells-next-the-Sea and explore the themes of Holy
Week and Easter whilst building our community and exploring the
north Norfolk countryside.
Wells Leg walks every day covering
distance suitable for young children. Most walks are suitable
for three-wheel buggies.
other activities including craft, beach fun, swimming, the steam
train and also join with the Easter activities of the local Parish,
conveniently across the road from the Youth Hostel. We walk the
whole distance from Wells to Walsingham over Maundy Thursday and
Good Friday to join the rest of the Legs at the Slipper Chapel.
We organise our own liturgy to cater for everyone in your family:
adult, baby, child or teenager so that we are all part of the
pilgrimage. We share short reflections called ‘Stations’ whilst we
are walking, have children-focused liturgy in the day, and
older-children / adult evening prayer.
We enjoy many things you may expect from walking other Legs of
Student Cross: the beach, local countryside, cake, beer, cheese and
whisky as we prepare ourselves to celebrate Easter. The Youth Hostel
has a mix of bedrooms (no dormitories) which mostly sleep 4-5 people
and we aim to keep family groups together where possible. We do our
own shared catering and have sole use of the accommodation.
We do not want the cost of coming on Wells Leg
to be a prohibitive factor in you being able to join us. The Student
Cross Association exists to provide financial assistance to people
who would otherwise not be able to come on Student Cross. Please
contact one of the leaders in confidence to find out more.
The leaders of Wells Leg 2018-19 are Helen and Murray White.
