Twenty people will be making a three-four day walking pilgrimage from St Benet’s, Norfolk, and Ely, Cambridgeshire, to Bury St Edmunds arriving Friday, 22 May. King Canute founded Benedictine monks at St Benet’s Abbey in 1019; Uvius, the first Abbot at the Abbey of St Edmund (1020-1044) came from St Benet’s accompanied by 20 monks, believed to be 13 from St Benet’s and seven from Ely. 

This event is part of a year of celebrations planned to commemorate the 1000 year anniversary of the founding of the Abbey of St Edmund in 2020.
