In a pilgrimage inspired by our Medieval predecessors, the Chartres Pilgrimage, and similar events around the world today, we walk 59 miles from Ely to Walsingham with the Traditional Mass, the Rosary, traditional devotions, chants, hymns and songs, to do honour to Our Lady of Walsingham and to pray for the conversion of England.
The pilgrimage starts with registration in Ely on the evening of Thursday 23rd August; and concludes with devotions in Walsingham on Sunday 26th August. There is an additional Mass for those staying Sunday night in the Slipper Chapel on Monday 27th August. This is the weekend of the August Bank Holiday.
Don’t miss your chance to take part in this unique event, by walking it, volunteering in it, or sponsoring the pilgrims.

Pilgrim's Handbook (Vademecum Peregrini)
We have specially created a re-usable Pilgrim’s Handbook with Mass texts, prayers, devotions, chants, and hymns for the road.
All pilgrim's will be issued with one at the time of the pilgrimage, but you may wish to buy one and have it delivered to your home in advance if you want to look at it ahead of the pilgrimage. It is available direct from the Lulu self-publishing website here
Please allow at least 10 days for Lulu's standard delivery option.
If you are unable to undertake the Walking Pilgrimage for whatever reason, then you are welcome to join a day pilgrimage by coach from London on the Sunday; details will follow shortly.
If you are not a member of the LMS, sign up today to save money on the pilgrimage and other events through the year, and support the work of the LMS.
