Ely to Walsingham Day 3: Arrival and Final Mass

We had to take a minibus from Swaffam to the village of Belhoughton, to make today's walk possible to complete in time for Mass at 2.30pm. As it was we walked the last ten miles to Walsingham, and then the 'Holy Mile' from the village to the Catholic Shrine.

We had our third and last Missa Cantata in the large, modern church in the Shrine complex, after praying in the Slipper Chapel.

We were able to have a cup of tea at the shrine before going our separate ways. It has been annextraordinary experience, covering more than 50 miles on foot over three days. We are all keen that this becomes a tradition!
