THE WALSINGHAM WAY
St. Andrew's, Great Ryburgh stands on the recently waymarked walking route between Norwich and Walsingham. The 37 mile path aims to celebrate the tradition of pilgrimage in Norfolk and also to encourage more people to enjoy the peaceful rural landscape of the Wensum Valley.
The Walsingham Way is inspired by a network of pilgrimage routes that once crossed the county as pilgrims from across Europe travelled to north Norfolk’s Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, which is thought to date back to 1061.
The Walsingham Way route takes about three days to complete on foot and can be started from either Norwich Cathedral or the city’s Roman Catholic Cathedral of St John the Baptist.
St. Andrew's is about three hours' leisurely walk from Walsingham and is a good overnight stopping place allowing pilgrims to rest and take stock before embarking on the final leg of the route. We can offer basic overnight facilities for small groups and also a place to camp. Larger groups may prefer to book the village hall.
