30th June Walk


The fourth Coventry Pilgrimage 2018 walk on Saturday June 30th started from St Leonard, Ryton on Dunsmore.  20 pilgrims set out on a warm morning that increased in temperature approaching noon, walking 2.1 miles to St Margaret Wolston, where welcome drinks were kindly provided. Those walking this leg of the pilgrimage were treated to the sight of a field covered with red poppies.  It’s really worth walking that stretch if you get the chance, to enjoy this piece of God’s glorious creation.

At noon, we paused to say the Coventry Litany of Reconciliation together.  Our journey ended, the last stage having been rerouted to avoid toiling up a steep hillside in the heat, at St John the Baptist Brinklow, where a splendid buffet lunch was laid out for us by the church team. Pilgrims really appreciated this 5* hospitality!

Clearly (and this was borne out from subsequent conversation), a number of people, especially those with children, had decided that the heat would have been too taxing.  We hope that a more moderate amount of sunshine may encourage more to join us for Walk 5 on Saturday July 28th.
