Pilgrims of Saint Crispin.

Post by Zachos »

Last weekend, myself and some friends of mine went on a pilgrimmage:

Image

Our outfits are mid 15th century English or thereabouts. The above picture is from when we were waiting for two other members of our party who had stopped to collect sloes along the way:

Image

This happened quite a few times in the course of the 4 hour hike:

Image

Although everyone took their turn at having to wait for the others:

Image

After a while we took a proper rest all together and ate some preserved meat and fruits:

Image

Once we'd mostly finished, those with any left stored it in their hat for later, and we set of again, towards the end of our journey and a pub.

Image

Oh, and a church. Mustn't forget about that.
Slowly realizing just how far is still to go.

Everyone should do a pilgrimage. It's a fantastic experience.

We did a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Walsingham last year, walking 22 miles over two days.

It was called the St Crispin's Pilgrimage because we wore out a lot of shoe leather, a tongue in cheek pilgrimage name ;-)

What was the reaction when you entered the pub??
I'm a "bendy-stick wielding little sod", and proud of it!
