26th May Walk

Take the true compass now, be compassed round By clouds of witness, chords of love unbound. Turn to the Son, begin your pilgrimage,
Take time with him to find your true direction. He travels with you through this darkened age And wakes you every day to resurrection.
from Malcolm Guite Pilgrimage

Remember to arrange transport in a group if possible, sharing cars and leaving a car at your destination, before driving to the starting point – not forgetting that everyone’s boots or sturdy shoes or trainers need to be with pilgrims at the starting point!

Perhaps pilgrims as they walk will find companions to share a late lunch with at The Malt Shovel or 3 Horseshoes Inn in Bubbenhall or the Blacksmiths Arms in Ryton on Dunsmore. It’s up to you.

Walk notes:
Walking is on tracks or over fields with some road walking. There are some stiles on both parts of this walk.Take care for your own safety on the roads and by the disused quarry near Bubbenhall.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, Who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. Psalm 84.5
