(BBC) Walsingham milestone marked at Westminster Cathedral

A mass at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday will mark the 950th anniversary of a holy site in Norfolk.

The national shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham celebrates its landmark year this year, as it was founded in 1061.

Many Christians from Norfolk are expected to attend the service, which will be led by Archbishop Vincent Nichols at 1400 GMT.

Other guests will include the new Papal Nuncio Archbishop Mennini and Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor.
