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

Brinklow: Park on the road where you can.
Ansty: Parking up the lane in car park beyond the church. 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!
Ansty Golf Club serves drinks and lunches, or back in Brinklow there’s the White Lion and The Bull’s Head.
Walk leaders for July 28th
John and Margaret Lloyd from Coventry Cathedral
Walking is mostly on tracks, canal towpath or over fields with a little road walking. Take care for your own safety on the roads especially crossing roads towards Ansty. Long trousers advised because a few sections may be overgrown.
Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
Who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.
