Update January 2013: Wells Leg
2013 is now fully booked
Wells Leg 2013 meets on Sunday 24
March (evening) and ends on Easter Sunday 31 March (afternoon).
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 a community and exploring the north
Wells Leg walks every day covering distance and terrain suitable for
buggies and young children. We plan 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, older
children / adult evening prayer and a family Seder meal on Thursday.
We enjoy many things you may expect from walking other Legs of
Student Cross: the beach, local countryside, cake, beer, cheese and
whiskey 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 and minimise
sharing with other families! We do our own shared catering
(including two barrels of beer) and have sole use of the
Adults £250, first 2 children £110,
then 3rd, 4th etc. £55, Under 2’s free (this includes all food and
accommodation costs). 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 2013 are Sarah and Mark Joyce.
