What a welcome sight to see Dry Drayton Church across a sea of yellow at the end of an epic 22.2 mile walk: my first Lordsbridge Pilgrimage! A wonderful reminder that we were nearly home! Six of us started at 7:30am that day in bright, sunny Coton. And all six of us finished, eleven hours later. We were joined throughout the day by fellow pilgrims, who walked with us, part of the way, before heading off home. We visited every beautiful church in the Lordsbridge Team, plus the stunning Kingston church, before lunching at the Old Rectory in Caldecote. I throughly enjoyed each church visit, and was amazed to see so many well preserved medieval wall paintings in so many of our parishes. I have never been on a pilgrimage before and was not sure what to expect. I didn’t even think I would finish! And yet, as the day wore on, and as we walked through the beautiful countryside, the miles soon evaporated. It was an incredible day of conversations, reflection, of seeing and being. Together, as we journeyed forward, to our destination, despite the tiredness, it was a day to cherish and remember as being one where we drew closer to God, and to each other. I can’t wait for next year!
