Pligrimage Walk

Part of the Abbey 1000 celebrations!

Pligrimage Walk
Start Date: 14 May 2022
End Date: 14 May 2022

St Benet's Norfolk to St Edmundsbury Cathedral

A group of walkers will be making a pilgrimage from St Benet’s, Norfolk to Bury St Edmunds arriving on May 14. 

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.   

Another pilgrimage group will walk from Ely to Bury St Edmunds in the spring to mark this historic anniversary.

More details on the Pilgrimage coming soon ...

Thanks to National Lottery players.
