    Eight people, ranging from people in their 70s to a nine year old child are going to be walking from Madley in Herefordshire to Hereford Cathedral this Sunday for Pentecost. When they arrive at the cathedral they will be taking part in the Thy Kingdom Come beacon event – the theme of which this year is pilgrimage.

    The pilgrimage, a distance of about seven miles will take them three hours.

    The group is collecting sponsorship in aid of Madley church which is in need of amongst other things roof repairs.

    They will be stopping at points along the route, which is mostly off road for prayers and reflection.

    Madley itself was a centre for pilgrimage in the 12th century with records suggesting that funds were raised from pilgrims for the building’s chancel.

    Do let me know if this of interest, the walk’s organiser would be a great interview and they are planning on taking photographs along the route.
