The direct route from Great Ryburgh to Walsingham in pictures



Note: The recently waymarked route avoids the busy Norwich - Fakenham  and  Fakenham - Cromer roads by taking a detour through Stibbard and Fulmodeston. These photos were taken during the inaugural pilgrimage before the route was fine tuned.


The starting point is St. Thomas's Chapel (South Transept) where pilgrims can gather for quiet reflection and prayer. If you would like some refreshment before you set out, you can make contact via this website and we will do our best to make you welcome.
