Pilgrimage through Bury Sy Edmunds - Heritage Open Days

A Pilgrimage through Bury St Edmunds – Heritage Open Days

September 9, 2022 | 9:30 am 11:00 am
St Edmundsbury Cathedral

Join us for a pilgrimage walk through Bury St Edmunds. This walk follows in the footsteps of the pilgrims in medieval times who visited the Abbey of St Edmund. Starting at St Saviour’s (former hospital), at each stopping point, there will be an explanation of its historical significance and then a reflection based on a relevant section from the Rule of St Benedict, encouraging participants to consider how the Rule might impact on life in the 21st century. The walk is led by Sarah Friswell, Visitor Experience Manager and Canon Matthew Vernon, Sub Dean and Canon Pastor at St Edmundsbury Cathedral. The pilgrimage finishes in the Abbey Gardens.


All are welcome on this walk. Please note that, in the style of a pilgrimage, it will include periods of reflection and silence.


Maximum number 15. Meet at St Saviour’s Hospital (back of Tescos)


Pre-booking required. Book here.
