Tyburn Walk 2014: Sunday, 31 August

The Tyburn Walk, originally organised by the Guild of Our Lady of Ransom, was the annual commemoration of the Catholic martyrs who were executed in London during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The walk followed the route that was travelled by the martyrs from the Old Bailey (site of the former Newgate Gaol) to where they were executed near Tyburn Convent, Marble Arch. It first started in 1910 and is a solemn commemoration
of those who died for the Catholic Faith.

This year the Latin Mass Society has organised the walk, on Sunday 31 August, which follows the traditional route, starting from St Sepulchre's Church in the City (opposite the Old Bailey), moving via Soho Square, where Mass will be offered, on to Oxford Street finishing at Tyburn Convent on the Bayswater Road just beyond the end of Edgware Road where there will be Benediction. The starting time will be 2.30pm and it is expected to reach Tyburn between 4.00pm and 5.00pm.
