Archbishop of Canterbury in Walsingham for annual youth pilgrimage

The Most Reverend Justin Welby joined 650 young people and their leaders at the annual youth pilgrimage to the Anglican Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham.

He took part in a torchlight procession along the ”˜Holy Mile’ which extends from the Roman Catholic slipper chapel to the village of Walsingham and the Anglican Shrine.

Before the destruction of the shrine in the 16th century medieval pilgrims would walk the last mile of their pilgrimage barefoot from the chapel and the tradition continues today.
