The Pilgrimage Project - Walking the walks! Next walk - 21st May

Come and join us!

Having planned a series of walks that link up all the churches in our Mission Community, we will be following the on-line guides and meditations on a series of Saturdays in Spring.

If you would like to join us please come along to the starting point, armed with waterproofs, walking boots, a map and a picnic. Please note the timings are estimated – I have added more time here to include meditations and breaks.

The walks can all be found at

Central Lakes Mission Community Pilgrimage Walks - St Mary's Parish Church Ambleside (stmarysambleside.org.uk)

Please do check the guide in advance to ensure it is suitable for your ability and experience. We do not have Mountain Leadership or First Aid qualifications, so we will not be responsible for your safety. You will join us at your own risk. (Sorry to be melodramatic!)

21st May 9:30am – Walk 5: Wray, Brathay and Ambleside
