The Ludlow Palmers raise money for the Conservation Trust for St Laurence, Ludlow; Charity Number 1114678


On a recent BBC TV programme, 'Pilgrimage: The Road to Santiago', seven individuals walked the Camino de Santiago from the Pyrenees mountains to the Cathedral of St James in Gallicia. Most of these walkers were not religious, but they found the journey provided insights into modern pilgrimage. For many, the Camino de Santiago offered time for self-reflection and discovery, for others it helped to come to terms with grief and changing circumstances. And, some individuals found the journey a great adventure or an opportunity to form new friendships and new communities.

Over the 26-28 May Bank Holiday, there will be an opportunity for you to find out for yourself the benefits of going on a modern pilgrimage. Pick one of the following pilgrimages from Ludlow to Hereford Cathedral:
  • 6-mile walk (or more adventurous 30-mile overnight walk);
  • 30-mile cycle ride through the Herefordshire countryside;
  • enjoy a garden pilgrimage;
  • take a coach to Hereford cathedral and experience a medieval pilgrim's journey.

Everyone participating in one of these modern pilgrimages will receive a pilgrim's badge as a memento. Optional cream teas and a Pilgrims' Evensong are on offer. Return transport by coach from Hereford to Ludlow will be provided.
