From coast to coast along the borders of England & Scotland
Starting in Carlisle, in 2013 this leg then goes to Lanercost, Haltwhistle, Wark, Otterburn, Ingram and Belford finishing on Holy Island.
We walk from coast to coast along the borders of England and Scotland, a journey of some 118 miles, through countryside whose wild beauty seems (to me at any rate) to bring God very close - and I hope during our journey he will be close to all of us. Pilgrimage is a life-changing event. We give ourselves to God and each other, and we are transformed in the process - maybe in ways we did not expect. Whatever we bring to the pilgrimage - expectations, burdens, talents - is laid at the foot of the Cross for God to use in his own way and time. We are likely to be joined by local people at various points, who may give us tea, sing a few hymns with us and/or walk with us some of the way. It is wonderful to be supported by people along our route and to join them in their preparations for Easter - it's one of the unique features of this leg - enjoy it!Click to read more >>>
